The Delhi Township Board of Trustees decided at a town meeting on March 15 to approve construction of two 400-foot greenhouses that will convert human waste to fuel to generate power. The project consists of a final treatment of the township’s waste water, which will be done through a de-watering mechanism and a sludge drying process. This type of waste treatment is used in Europe. “Other areas of the world are being told that this is the way to go and this is our opportunity,” said Township Supervisor Stuart Goodrich. Goodrich explained that this project is intended to be the final step toward making the township’s treatment plant a complete circle of renewable energy.
