Alberta Capital Region Wastewater Commission Receives $225,000 from the Green Municipal Fund for Co-generation Field Test using Biogas from Wastewater

FORT SASKATCHEWAN, AB, March 22 /CNW Telbec/ – Councillor Ken Lesniak of
Strathcona County (AB), representing the Federation of Canadian
Municipalities’ (FCM) National Board of Directors, and Ken Epp, MP (Edmonton-
Sherwood Park), representing Gary Lunn, Minister of Natural Resources Canada,
announced today a $225,000 grant from the Green Municipal Fund (GMF) for a
12-month field test by the Alberta Capital Region Wastewater Commission
(ARCWC) to enhance the use of biogas from the wastewater treatment process.
ARCWC will combust a portion of the raw biogas in a combined heat and power
(CHP) system using a 58 kilowatt (kW) Stirling Cycle external combustion
engine. Results from the test will be analyzed to determine the viability and
efficiencies (energy, operations and maintenance) that can be gained by a full-
scale system in the range of four megawatts (MW).
