Solid Sewer Waste is Big Money

July 25, 2014

A sewage waste contract approved last year by the Detroit City Council
is under current FBI federal investigation.
(As seen in the Detroit News – Metro and State section July 24, 2014)
The Detroit City Council voted 5-4 way back in November 2007 to award
Synagro Technologies Inc. a contract to handle the
city’s processed sewage for close to $47 million a year.

What is hot and new for Metro-Detroit communities ?
– Making electricity from what’s flushed down the sewer.

Mark Hackel claims no legal obligation
to amend a solid waste plan in Macomb county.

The firm “Waste Management” last year completed and opened a
new $15 million plant adjacent to Pine Tree Acres Landfill
that converts landfill gas to electricity,
expanding the power output capacity via the landfill
from 8.8-megawatts to 21.6 megawatts,
enough to power about 17,000 homes.

It gets REALLY interesting when you figure in The City of Detroit.
Detroit Renewable Energy is a subsidiary Detroit Renewable Power
It generates up to 68 megawatts of electricity for
DTE Energy Co. which is subsidiary of The Detroit Edison Co.
