Here’s what happened. (Scroll through the bottom for the GoT reference)
FCC Recycling Processing Audit
FCC officially commenced operations at the plant Jan. 2, 2017, receiving single-stream material from the city of Dallas as well as from the city of University Park, Texas, which in November 2016 awarded FCC a five-year service contract for the treatment and marketing of all the city recyclables.
With the latest sorting and classification techniques, including optical sorters, as well as gravimetric sorting machines all housed in a 60,000 square foot (5600 squar metre) building, the plant can handle more than 40 tonnes per hour of single-stream material.
Construction on the MRF began at the start of 2016. The design was based on helping the city to meet goals to increase waste diversion to 40 percent by 2020; 60 percent by 2030; and 80 percent (“zero waste”) by 2040.
Toyota’s $1B Headquarter
Additionally, Toyota demonstrates its commitment to sustainability with consideration for the environment as it aims to achieve LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council by offering:
- Exterior landscaping reflects the native habitat, with drought resistant plants
- A Texas-sized 8.79-megawatt array of more than 20,000 solar panels
- A commitment to use only renewable energy, purchasing all electricity not generated by the solar panels from wind generated by Texas farms
- A rainwater harvesting system, up to 400,000 gallons, to use in irrigation
Trinity River Audubon Center
Trinity River Audubon Center is about ten miles south of downtown Dallas. 6,000-acre of Great Trinity Forest, the largest urban hardwood forest in the United States. There’s a diverse community of plant and animal species and unique mix of bottomland hardwood forest, wetland, and prairie habitat.
It was fun walking around the trail, we’ve spotted various types of dragonflies, butterflies wild flowers, blueberries (they’re still red though), caterpillars, small colourful bugs and tortoise. I felt like I am Dora or something.
Central Wastewater Treatment
The plant has a design treatment capacity of 170 million US gallons (640,000 m3) per day, and treats an average flow of about 100 MGD. The peak treatment capacity of CWWTP is rated at 350 million US gallons (1,300,000 m3) per day.
The plant is a conventional activated sludge plant with trickling filters. DWU Central WWTP is in operation for more than 100 years and has gone through various changes throughout those years. Most prominently, after the introduction of Clean Water Act, activated sludge was included to the treatment process along with trickling filters.
That’s the update! Kind of sad that the fellowship is coming to an end. Time flies! But excited for Washington DC.
Now GoT⚔️🐉Are you ready? Here we go.
