Explore our library of global case studies to learn how Capstone microturbines are aligning with businesses across various markets to improve their energy consumption through on-site power production. Since 1988, Capstone has shipped thousands of clean-and-green microturbines to customers around the world, logging millions of cumulative operating hours in the field. After all, Capstone is committed to improving the efficiency of the world’s energy infrastructure and reducing pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions.
The wastewater treatment facility in the shire of Melton in Melbourne is Australia’s first to install a microturbine with a combined heat and power (CHP) system, which helps transform sewage water into carbon-neutral recycled water, electricity, and heat. “We aim to become a zero-waste recycling plant by 2017. Capstone’s clean-burning, low-emission microturbine allows us to turn waste into a resource in the most innovative way. The reliable and low maintenance turbine has surpassed our expectations. This great success has motivated us to continue looking for other opportunities to further reduce greenhouse-gas emissions within other recycled water treatment plants.”
