Bioenergy / Energy from wasteProject Logan City Biosolids Gasification Project
This report provides an overview of the design and delivery challenges in constructing the Loganholme Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) biosolids gasification facility.
The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the design and delivery challenges in constructing the Loganholme Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) biosolids gasification facility. The innovation in the gasification facility is using individually proven technologies and systems from different industries around the world and integrating it into a process that can be replicated by others water utilities.
A demonstration trial was undertaken in February 2021 that validated the concept and provided vital information to develop the design and interfaces. However, with innovation meant challenges such as process assumptions, performance requirements, compliance with various design codes, liaison with international and remote designers, and working in an environment of developing legislation and standards.
These design and delivery challenges are identified in this report to provide the knowledge in assisting future water utilities looking to incorporate Gasification into their biosolids management.
