OCSD wins prestigious environmental award

Post Date:02/15/2012 8:00 AM
The Orange County Sanitation District continues to gain recognition for its Fuel Cell Demonstration for Energy and Hydrogen Production with an award on February 13 from the Nation Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA).

NACWA awarded OCSD with its National Environmental Achievement Award recognizing this high-profile, cutting edge project that converts renewable gas from wastewater treatment to electricity, heat, and hydrogen in a highly efficient and clean stationary fuel cell. While other agencies have fuel cells that produce electricity and heat, this is the first “tri-generation” system to produce electricity, heat and hydrogen.

We are proud to receive this prestigious honor and congratulate our partners in this project: the Federal Department of Energy, the California Air Resources Board, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, Southern California Gas Company, Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., Fuel Cell Energy and the National Fuel Cell Research Center at University of California, Irvine.
