As a ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy this project was demonstrated to the Congressman to further his knowledge on the technological advance available to the municipal wastewater industry, which provides significant benefits for: creating jobs and driving economic development in the surrounding community and across the state, reducing the energy consumption to operate such a facility, creating a significant renewable energy source, and producing cleaner water.
“We were honored that Congressman Tonko would take the time to understand the ClearCove disruptive technology. This demonstrates that he truly cares about his constituencies, creating jobs and economic opportunities in New York State and make the world a better place through green energy.” said ClearCove’s President Gary Miller.
The pilot at the Nott Road facility is being demonstrated as the second of two NYSERDA funded projects to validate the benefits of the installation of the ClearCove technology in regards to reduction in energy and operations costs while providing high energy value organic sludge.
In addition to Congressman Tonko and his staff, others in attendance included representatives from NYSERDA, Albany County Sewer District, Town of Guilderland, and the local media.
