DC converting sewerage sludge into electricity

Waste not, want not.

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District already converts some treated waste into fertilizer, and pipes in landfill methane gas from Menomonee Falls to help run its Jones Island facility, but its Washington, DC counterpart has taken the resource conversion on step further - - creating fuel for electric power generation.

Fascinating story in The Washington Post.
