BALTIMORE, Maryland, February 11, 2020 – Synagro Technologies, Inc., the preeminent provider of biosolids and residuals solutions services in North America, today announced that the City of Fort Worth has partnered with Synagro of Texas-CDR (Synagro) to provide a long-term solution to its biosolids management needs. Commencing in April of 2020, Synagro will assume operation of the city’s current biosolids management facility and program, and simultaneously, along with project its team members, will design-permit-and-construct the drum drying facility which Synagro will operate for up to twenty years.
The new drying facility will process 100 percent of the biosolids produced by the city’s Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility (VCWRF) as Class A biosolids. With the capacity to treat up to 166 million gallons of wastewater per day, the VCWRF is one of the largest in Texas. With rapid growth and a population approaching 900,000, Fort Worth is now the 13th largest city in the United States.
“Synagro was uniquely able to provide a complete solution, including transition services and land application while the Class A facility is under construction,” said Andrew Bosinger, vice president, Strategic Accounts, Synagro. “Our solutions package allowed the city to minimize risks while maximizing the value of the design-build-operate procurement approach.
“Utilities across North America are faced with difficult choices in their biosolids program: How to invest in the upgrades required to address changing regulations and public pressures while working within the constraints of limited municipal budgets,” added Bosinger. “The city was able to use a public-private partnership to achieve both cost and risk reductions, while upgrading their biosolids management program and securing and stabilizing a significant piece of its budget. Simultaneously, the city is providing long-term sustainability to its biosolids program.”
Founded in 1986, Synagro Technologies, Inc. works to turn waste into worth by helping more than 600 municipal and industrial water and wastewater facilities in North America move toward safer, cleaner, and more environmentally beneficial practices. For some, it’s simply cleaning the water supply. For others, it’s much more – we partner with them to process their waste for compost or energy pellets, creating healthy soil and sequestering carbon in the process. As the largest recycler of organic by-products in North America, we’re trusted because we remove risks while keeping the logistics clean. Because our expertise is the oldest in the business, we can offer tailored solutions that ensure no waste goes to waste. Much of our work isn’t pretty. But a greener world emerging from a cleaner one – worth coming from waste – and we think that’s pretty beautiful. Visit synagro.com to learn more.
