Environmental & Economic Advantages

The Terminal Island Renewable Energy (T.I.R.E.) demonstration project includes extensive field monitoring and sampling from sensors installed in both the injection and offset monitoring wells.  This monitoring enables GeoEnvironment Technologies to instantly measure pressure and temperature variations at the point of injection and offset monitoring location in order to quantify slurry placement, biodegradation rates, carbon dioxide and methane separation, carbon dioxide sequestration and saturation in the formation brine, and free gas migration and production. This technology provides the following environmental and economic benefits over current practices:

  • Enhanced treatment and sterilization of biosolids
  • Greater protection for surface and shallow groundwaters 
  • Provides a local solution, reducing long distance truck traffic
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere 
  • Recycles waste into high quality clean energy for beneficial use
