ZURICH, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE / May 2, 2017 / Today, the green energy technology company International Wastewater Systems Inc. (CSE: IWS; Frankfurt: IWI) announced a $330,000 USD contract to install its innovative SHARC thermal energy exchange system to the new headquarters of the District of Columbia Water & Sewer Authority ("DC Water") in Washington, DC, USA. The new $60 million USD headquarters is being constructed on the waterfront of the Anacostia River in southeast Washington, DC, and will serve as the new public face for the agency. For IWS, it's a major showcase project, potentially leading to more installations globally. "The idea of building a 150,000-square-foot headquarters building directly over a pumping station would normally be viewed as implausible. But by doing so, DC Water will be able to leverage the station's wastewater to provide enough power to heat and cool this large building. It's a breakthrough solution and a perfect complement to DC Water's objective of a greener, healthier District of Columbia." "DC Water's new state-of-the-art building is a world class design-build project. The integration of SHARC technology demonstrates the world-class caliber of IWS's projects and partners, and represents the increased adoption of IWS systems in the United States."

Domestic sewage contains various organic substances, mainly from toilets and kitchens. These are harmful to the environment, but also contain energy. Researchers from Ghent University discovered how to efficiently extract this energy from the wastewater. Researcher dr. Francis Meerburg (Center for Microbial Ecology and Technology): "The levels of organic matter in sewage are too low to be directly recovered. We investigated how we can use bacteria to capture this material. Our approach is unique because we have developed a high-rate variation of the so-called contact-stabilization process. " Professor Nico Boon: "We periodically starve the bacteria, in a kind of 'fasting regimen'. Afterwards, wastewater is briefly brought into contact with the starved bacteria which are gluttonous and gobble up the organic matter without ingesting all of it. This enables us to harvest the undigested materials for the production of energy and high-quality products. We starve the rest of the bacteria, so that they can purify fresh sewage again. " By using the contact-stabilization process, up to 55% of the organic matter could be recovered from sewage. This is a huge step forward, because the existing processes cannot recover more than 20 to 30%. The researchers calculated that this amount can provide sufficient amounts of energy to completely treat sewage without the need for external electricity. "This is an important step in the direction of wastewater treatment that is energy neutral, or even produces energy," said Professor Siegfried Vlaeminck. Industrial partners already showed interest in the contact-stabilization process. Francis Meerburg: "Within my PhD, I could work with DC Water (Washington DC, USA), which is responsible for the purification of the US capital city. Currently, a contact-stabilization trial is performed on a part of their full-scale water treatment installation. They are evaluating whether the process can help achieve a more efficient wastewater treatment." Going from a lab development in Belgium directly to large-scale application abroad is not an ordinary event. The interest from the industry clearly shows that it is time for more affordable and sustainable processes in wastewater treatment. Explore further: Poo power no longer just a pipe dream

Hurricane Wind Power has reviewed the Wind solar hydro power renewable energy and sustainable living world since it announced the launch of Hurricane Wind Power Double Fold back DC Water Heating Element back in 07/01/2015. Hurricane Wind Power’s Dc Water Heater was promised to shake things up and 1 year later, facts are in. Previously, with even a passing glance, a person would notice single loop water heating elements had been on the market for a long time. The idea of using the same high efficiency technology seen in AC water heating elements as seen in popular home DIY outlets was adapted for DC water heating to accommodate DC off grid wind solar and renewable energy application to heat water more efficiently that what was being offered on the market. .The CEO at Hurricane Wind Power, Anthony Jones, makes a point of saying “things were always going to change when we launched Hurricane Wind Power Double Fold back DC Water Heating Element”. Anthony Jones continues… “Where you’ll likely always see competitors doing the same old thing, we wanted to We have shifted the focus to ignoring the ways other competitors have focused on their products and solutions and concentrated on evidence based solutions. .We do this because we believe If everyone just copies the other guy no progress is made and the goal of living a sustainable lifestyle is not going to be met without increasing product efficiencies. Ultimately we knew it was going to be of huge benefit to the customers because The consumer will use less of their energy generated in renewable systems to heat water. . We actually hope others follow suit.” While some have to some attempt attempted to copy the technology the original design still hold a foothold in the marketplace that has been untouched due to the flawless operation and efficiency of the product line. Hurricane Wind Power was established in 3/01/2008. It has been doing business 9 years since 2008 and it has always aimed to the main goal is to create sustainable living solutions for consumers at affordable prices. Ultimately the focus of the business is to make the power grid the alternative. Currently, the closest thing to Hurricane Wind Power Double Fold back DC Water Heating Element is single loop inefficient dc water heaters with minimal surface area, but Hurricane Wind Power double fold back DC Water Heating Element improved on this by provide more surface area to provide quick recovery and enhanced heating times. This alone was enough to make Hurricane Wind Power’s Dc Water Heater more popular with customers in the wind solar hydro power renewable energy and sustainable living space, quickly.
