Orange Water and Sewer Authority (OWASA) provides water, sewer, and reclaimed water services to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro community in North Carolina. Their wastewater treatment plant produces methane as a byproduct of their Class A anaerobic digestion process. They use a portion of the gas as fuel for their boilers, but flare the rest of the gas off. OWASA is interested in installing a combined heat and power (CHP) system at the plant if it is economically feasible. The minimum expected engine size is approximately 330 kW.
