Bringing clean, sustainable biosolids gasification to New Jersey

Linden, NJ, Mayor Derek Armstead (above left) recently toured the site of the Aries Linden Biosolids Gasification Facility and discussed progress made to date with Aries’ Construction Manager Steve Barrett. The mayor is looking forward to this environmentally friendly method of biosolids disposal that will process 430

tons per day. In the photo on the right, the thermal oxidizer is set in place. Inside the thermal oxidizer, the gas converted from the biosolids will be combusted to release energy for the drying process. Hot gas will exit through the round holes. The square hole is a maintenance entrance.
