Black & Veatch has been chosen to lead a $35 million incinerator air emissions upgrade program through the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD).
In order to meet the new federal air emission limits for existing and new sewage sludge incinerators, set by the EPA in 2011 , MSD said the upgrade is vital.
The deadline for compliance is March 21, 2016.
Black & Veatch will install advanced wet scrubbers on its Bissell Point and Lemay plants to meet the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards, according to a release by the company.
Engineering services for preliminary and final design will be provided by Black & Veatch.
The project is expected to bid to contractors in March of 2015, while construction is projected to begin by May 1, 2015. Completion is set before the compliance deadline to allow testing for the scrubbers.
