"We have seen consistent improvement in the plant's performance since Veolia began operating in February this year," said Greg Northrup, principal at SPART. "Veolia's experience in waste-to-energy was just what the plant needed."
Recognizing Veolia's unique expertise in both wastewater and energy operations, SPART selected the company to operate and maintain the Lowell Energy facility with the primary goal of increasing system performance.
SPART was recently recognized as Newsmaker of the Year in the Sustainability Category for their work with anaerobic digestion in west Michigan. The partnership is currently engaged in feasibility studies for a number of distributive energy projects—both biogas fired and natural gas fired—in the food processing, medical and manufacturing sectors.
"Veolia, by nature of its corporate mission, focuses on green energy and resource recovery," said John Gibson, president and COO of Veolia North America's Municipal & Commercial business. "Partnering with innovators such as SPART, where our shared commitment to reduce greenhouse gases and turning what was once waste into beneficial fuel, underpins Veolia's vision of sustainable communities and industry."
