Thames Water Converts Sewage Treatment Works into Poo Power Plants

April 18, 2024 Uncategorized 0

Thames Water, UK’s largest water company, has converted two of its sewage treatment works (STWs), Hogsmill and Beddington in Surrey and Sutton respectively, into poo power plants by converting the sewage sludge produced into biomethane, which is then used as a source of electricity.

The Hogsmill STW is producing enough electricity to power 900 properties while the one in Beddington is supplying to 1200 homes. This conversion of sludge to electricity at these two plants comes after successful conversion projects at their STWs in Beckton and Maplelodge. Thames Water collaborated with the UK Power Networks to upgrade the electricity capacity. The success of these projects has proved that converting wastewater into an energy source is an effective way of powering homes and commercial establishments.
