San Jose Cogen Wastewater Facility

The Regional Wastewater Facility serves eight South Bay cities and four districts and is the largest tertiary wastewater treatment plant in the Western U.S. As part of a major infastructure rehabilitation, the water treatment process is being upgraded at all stages for optimal plant operation. The design-build cogeneration portion of the project includes four 4 new low emissions iternal combustion engines, a heat recovery system and a gas treatment system to improve operational reliability and efficiency. It will enable full reuse of the digester biogas to generate heat and power for plant operations.
