Memorizing the title might be a challenge, let alone reciting it aloud three times fast: Kenosha energy optimized resource recovery project. Average Kenosha residents need only consider this: The complex, $10 million state-of-the-art system nearing completion in the Kenosha Water Utility wastewater treatment plant will save taxpayers some $675,000 annually in landfill and energy costs, the utility projects. “Our ultimate goal is to become energy neutral and energy independent,” KWU General Manager Ed St.

After many years of repairing and servicing centrifuges for water and wastewater treatment purposes, Michael Kopper, founder and chief executive officer of Centrisys Corp., decided it might be time to design his own — one that needed less maintenance and would be more energy efficient. The Kenosha company’s reputation for service became so widely known that one municipality, Honolulu, wanted to order a centrifuge that would be manufactured in Germany, but serviced by Centrisys. That order was jeopardized when the foreign manufacturer decided it could not make what Kopper wanted. He knew he could not fail. He had to fill the order.
