Helping Reduce Carbon Emissions

Morrison-Maierle was contracted to provide the preselection of the cogeneration system, electrical and mechanical design, bidding, and construction oversight for the installation of a cogeneration system for the City of Missoula Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The main goal for the installation of a cogeneration system was to use all the biogas produced by the facility to create electricity and heat for the plant and remove the need to flare the biogas during portions of the year when heat is not needed.

The team selected a system with respect to efficiency, ease of operation, maintenance, and overall effectiveness to find a solution that best fits the needs of the city’s staff who operate the CHP system. It also meets the requirements as lined out in the city’s conservation and climate action plan.
