Fairfax County Waste-to-Energy Facility
The Fairfax County Waste-to-Energy Facility—also known as the I-95 Energy/Resource Recovery Facility—began commercial operation in June 1990. The four-boiler mass-burn facility occupies nearly 23 acres and is one of the largest of its kind in the country, processing 3,000 tons per day of municipal solid waste and producing more than 80 megawatts of electric power that serves more than 900,000 residents in its respective Washington, D.C. suburban area.
Since 1998, D&B has provided consulting engineering services in support of the operations of this vital regional facility. The firm’s primary assignments to date include reviewing revenues, monitoring facility operations, review air quality, overseeing ash testing, impact analysis reports for electrical generation upgrades, facility condition and operations assessments, and reviewing all existing agreements and permits.
