Title of proposal: South Plant Biogas and Heating Systems Improvements
Description of proposal: The King County Wastewater Treatment Division (KCWTD) proposes to replace the existing biogas upgrading system (BUS) and heating systems at KCWTD's South Treatment Plant (STP) in Renton, WA. The project will improve the plant's ability to produce biomethane gas, which can be used as fuel, from the wastewater treatment process. The project will also improve the plant's heating systems to mot'e reliably meet process and space heating demands. The project includes construction of the Heat and Energy Recovery Building (HERB), a new thermal oxidizer, heating system improvements within the existing Digester Equipment Building, stormwater management facilities, and utility connections. Project construction is scheduled to begin in mid-2019, and the new biogas and heating system is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2021.
