NC wastewater treatment facility growing sunflowers for on-site biodiesel

July 12, 2017 |

In North Carolina, the Neuse River Resource Recovery Facility is farming 1,000 acres to use up the biosolids produced from its wastewater treatment facility including sunflowers that are grown for biodiesel feedstock. The oil seeds will be processed on site using a mobile biodiesel facility brought in by an 18-wheeler. The project’s first sunflower-for-biodiesel harvest will take place this fall. The biofuel is then used to help reduce the wastewater treatment facility’s fossil fuel usage.
