FuelCell Energy, Inc. recently announced the sale of its DFC1500MA power plant to operate on anaerobic digester gas from a sewage treatment facility serving the southern California city of Riverside. The facility treats 30 million gal of wastewater daily. The Direct FuelCell® (DFC®) plant was sold through FuelCell Energy’s distributor, Alliance Power Inc. Riverside will own and operate the DFC1500MA at Riverside’s Water Quality Control Plant through its Public Works Department, and will assume ownership of the unit upon project completion.

Renewable fuel for the DFC1500MA power plant will come from gas generated in the wastewater treatment process. Until now, this digester gas has been used by three reciprocating engines that power the treatment plant. However, because fuel cells convert renewable digester gas into electricity electrochemically and involve no combustion, they operate hundreds of times cleaner than conventional power generators.
