FlexEnergy Inc and MISCOwater + energy to Partner in Clean Energy Generation Solutions for Wastewater Treatment Plants
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — FlexEnergy Inc (www.flexenergy.com), a clean tech company with the breakthrough solution to generate clean energy with near-zero emissions, has selected MISCOwater + energy (www.miscowater.com), a leading integrator of clean energy generation systems, as its sales representative in the municipal wastewater environment in the western United States. The two companies will promote systems that generate renewable energy for on-site use at municipal wastewater treatment plants, using methane from anaerobic digesters as fuel.
“MISCOwater’s established presence and respected reputation in the municipal wastewater environment make it an excellent choice to represent our advanced solutions for generating heat and electrical energy from methane-rich biogas,” said Joseph Perry, CEO, FlexEnergy Inc.
“We specialize in environmentally sound, economically viable solutions to convert anaerobic digester gas into power, and we are pleased to add FlexEnergy Inc’s product line to our portfolio,” said MISCOwater’s CEO Mike Tooley.
Ideal for wastewater treatment plants and other sources of biogas, FlexEnergy’s Flex Powerstation(TM) FP250 uses digester gas as fuel to generate electricity and useful heat while destroying methane, a harmful source of greenhouse gases. The Flex Powerstation(TM) FP250 uses an advanced thermal oxidizer to destroy methane from digesters using its unique ability to operate reliably within a target temperature range that is high enough to destroy volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and carbon monoxide (CO), yet low enough to prevent the formation of oxides of nitrogen (NOx). This one of a kind operating environment allows the Flex Powerstation(TM) FP250 to meet all current and planned state and federal air quality regulations. An optional heat recovery system can be used to create the industry’s only integrated single-platform package for combined heat and power to optimize digester temperatures and boost overall energy efficiency.
