Sustainability & Renewable Energy

While most manufacturers have ongoing efforts to reduce water consumption and wastewater generation, the challenge and expense of managing wastewater streams remains substantial.

Our technologies provide the most efficient and effective path to treat wastewater, deliver tangible energy and sustainability results, reduce carbon footprint, and promote sustainable manufacturing.

Gensets/CHP Systems

We provide Genset and Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems for onsite renewable electricity and heat generation. Our systems can be provided as stand-alone units, or as part of wastewater treatment.
We provide:
  • Turn-key biogas or dual fuel (biogas/natural gas) systems
  • Waste heat capture systems for use in manufacturing
  • Integration of Genset/CHP unit with Facility electric switch gear to reduce peak demand
  • Automatic switch gear and protective relays for Grid connection and electricity export
  • Electrical interconnection submittals and permitting support

Biogas Storage & Handling

Biogas generated from anaerobic wastewater treatment can be used as a source of renewable electricity or Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). This can improve the financial benefits and reduce the Return On Investment (ROI) period for wastewater treatment projects.
Our biogas utilization services & technologies include:
  • Storage and buffering
  • Drying, dehumidification and purification
  • Compression and conveyance to nearby Natural Gas pipeline
  • Open or enclosed emergency flares
  • Regulatory permitting and submittals

Reduction of Waste Generation

In addition to our expertise in “end-of-pipe” treatment and control measures, EMG maintains a proactive philosophy with regard to reducing the costs and regulatory liability of wastes at the source. We constantly look to eliminate waste generation or, alternatively, convert it into a usable product.
Our services and technologies that help our clients reduce waste generation include:
  • Waste minimization audits
  • Solids separation, composting, and sale/re-use
  • Waste conversion into biogas
  • Wastewater treatment with low sludge generation

Water Recycling & Re-use

With water becoming a scarce resource, its sustainable use and conservation is increasingly important. Our water recycling and re-use technologies help our clients advance toward their water sustainability and conservation goals.
Our services include:
  • Advanced wastewater treatment and polishing
  • Nitrogen and Phosphorous Removal
  • Ultra Filtration (UF)
  • Reverse Osmosis (RO)
  • Disinfection and UV treatment
