The Bio-Energy Recovery Project is a new way to manage waste byproducts at the Neuse River Resource Recovery Facility (NRRRF), which is the City's main wastewater treatment plant. At this time the waste byproducts, called biosolids, are highly treated at the NRRRF and applied to surrounding agriculture fields or taken offsite by a contractor. However, because the existing biosolids handling equipment is in need of replacement and the overall biosolids amount will increase with future growth, a new treatment system is needed.
