Click below to read about Tom Sigmund, executive director of NEW Water, and his focus to reduce phosphorus inputs to the Lower Fox River and the bay of Green Bay, an arm of Lake Michigan. Sigmund realized that incineration was their best option, stating, "We looked at all the technologies available to deal with solids. There is so much dairy waste in this area that land application of biosolids is hard to do. Landfilling doesn’t make any sense. We looked at producing dried pellets, but that’s a big investment and there’s not much of a market for the product. We knew how to do incineration, and so our challenge was to figure out how to recover and reuse as much energy as possible.”
