SHARC Wastewater Energy Transfer system to be installed in Seattle

(UC) — SHARC International Systems Inc. has received a purchase order from California | Columbia Hydronics Corp. (CHC) for its Wastewater Energy Transfer (WET) system to be installed in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S.

This WET equipment can exchange thermal energy from and into high volumes of wastewater with a minimal footprint, higher efficiency and superior filtration when compared to alternative WET equipment on the market.

Essentially, the SHARC WET system is an engineer accepted low carbon and ecofriendly heating and cooling solution that cities and developers can utilize to promote a circular economy, decarbonize hot water, and space heating, reduce the use of freshwater in cooling towers and reduce the ambient temperature of wastewater to acceptable levels for treatment and discharge.

“We are excited to have the first SHARC WET system installed in the pacific northwest of the USA and to support King County achieve its goal of recovering energy from the sewer,” Lynn Mueller, CEO of SHARC Energy, said. “We anticipate the interest in SHARC technology will continue to grow as the global focus on reducing the use of fossil fuels is accelerated through policy and incentives. We would also like to thank the CHC team for this win and for supporting us to continue to grow the awareness of SHARC WET projects and its installation footprint in our key target markets.”

The project will be taking advantage of the King County Wastewater Heat Recovery Pilot Project program being pioneered by the King County Wastewater Treatment Division. The pilot program provides for no WET fees to be charged in exchange for the operational data of the WET systems for the first three years of operation. This pilot program is the first of its kind in North America.

The SHARC WET system will be installed in the heart of Seattle, a few minutes from the Space Needle, showcasing the power of wastewater in the heart of the Pacific Northwest.

The SHARC WET system is installed in D.C Water Administrative Building in Washington, D.C. and the National Western Center, North America’s largest WET District Energy System in Denver, Colorado. SHARC Energy’s team along with its representatives are working on a growing list of WET projects at various stages of feasibility, design and planning across the country.
