Green Projects - Fuel Cell Project

Riverside RWQCP Fuel Cell Power PlantThe Riverside Water Quality Control Plant (RWQCP) has recently installed a fuel cell power plant. The fuel cell power plant produces energy with reduced impact to the environment. The fuel cell at the RWQCP generates electricity with no combustion.

The fuel cell is in effect a large continuously operating battery that generates electricity as long as a source of hydrocarbon such as methane gas is supplied. Since the gas is not burned there is no pollution commonly associated with combustion.

The RWQCP produces methane gas from the anaerobic digestion process when treating and disposing of the sewer effluent. This source of methane has been deemed a renewable fuel for electrical power generation.
