1,300 Mile Journey
The City and Bureau of Juneau implements the BioCon™ belt drying system to reduce risks associated with hauling dewatered biosolids and to provide multiple options for end use.
The Juneau area poses some unique geographical challenges that point toward a general need for more established and reliable technologies. These challenges include a relatively remote location, limited transportation options that may result in delayed shipments for equipment, an unpredictable climate, and lack of specialized support services. Considering these factors, CBJ project team members agreed to find a stable long-term biosolids disposal solution. The solution must also adhere to the EPA guidelines for established or innovative technologies.
