IEUA RP-1 Fuel Cell Plant Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Under this proposed project a 2.8 megawatt (MW) fuel cell system will be installed at the RP-1 treatment plant between the existing Energy Recovery Building and the Blower Building. IEUA will supply the digester gas and supplemental natural gas required for fuel cell operation at full load. Heat recovery generated by the fuel cell will be used for process digester heating. As part of the project, a gas treatment system will be installed to treat and clean the digester gas before it is used in the proposed fuel cell. Because of the heat recovery associated with this project, it is considered to be a "cogeneration project."
