Waste to Energy
Anaerobic Digestion: Turning Waste into Energy

Sustainability and renewable energy are becoming increasingly important as our communities grow larger and the cost of energy continues to rise. Sustainability and the triple-bottom-line are at the core of the Waste to Energy Industry. The Waste to Energy industry works by converting what was once thought of as useless organic by-products of the food and beverage industry and agriculture into energy in the form of methane, or natural gas, via a biochemical process called anaerobic digestion. The energy created by this process can then be used onsite if necessary, while the excess is sold to the power grid and ultimately the surrounding community.  Aside from these economic and communal benefits, the Waste to Energy industry also aids in mitigating various environmental concerns like pathogens, odor control, as well as groundwater contamination. 

What's our role in the industry?

Watertech is a complete resource for customers currently operating anaerobic digesters, as well as those who are considering Waste to Energy. We go above and beyond simply supplying chemicals by offering technical, informational, and mechanical support. 

Information + Technology + Tools = Eye-Opening Effective Water Management

Watertech commercial and institutional customers who benefit from our complete water treatment program tell us they never realized how little they were getting from their previous provider. Effective water management is everything working together, pure and simple. With less and less onsite resources, rising energy costs, and the spotlight on sustainability, it just makes good business sense to partner up with Watertech in order to truly leverage the power of your water and water systems.

Whether you need chemicals, equipment, or consultation, Watertech can give you the edge to meet today's water management issues.
