Biogas

Capstone MicroTurbines can cleanly burn waste gases to create renewable power and heat.

Treatment of domestic wastewater, agricultural waste, and food processing waste using anaerobic digestion also produces methane and other gases.  Many sites flare these waste gases; or worse yet, vent them directly into the atmosphere.

A better environmental solution is to use these waste gases to generate renewable power, and Capstone MicroTurbines can do it cleanly and economically.

This page contains case studies on biogas facilities that are currently utilizing our technology.

Commercial & Industrial Oil and Gas

 

York Wastewater Plant, York, Pennsylvania – Government/Municipal

A Capstone C1000 and C600 operate on natural gas and biogas produced from York’s 26 million gallons of sewage each day.

Sheboygan Wastewater Plant, Sheboygan, Wisconsin – Government/Municipal

The Sheboygan Wastewater Treatment Plant has 10 low-emission Capstone microturbines that use methane gas created by solid waste to generate onsite electricity and heat, cutting the plants electric and natural gas bills by 40% and earning renewable energy and emissions credits.

den Dulk Dairy, Ravenna, Michigan – Agricultural

Waste methane gas from the 47-foot-tall (14-meter-tall) anaerobic digester fuels a Capstone microturbine that produces 30kW of clean, green electricity and 45kW of thermal energy used for building heat.
