  • Technology Roadmap for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment Plants in a Carbon-Constrained World

    Resources end up in wastewater through inefficient consumption.  As a result, wastewater contains reusable water, carbon (energy) and nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur) that could be recovered or reused. Meanwhile, current treatment objectives are to produce an acceptable quality of water for reuse or discharge at the lowest life cycle ...

  • Overview of State Energy Reduction Programs and Guidelines for the Wastewater Sector

    Approximately 35% of a wastewater treatment facilities’ total cost to provide wastewater service is for energy use.  Industry wide, about 0.6% of the electric energy produced in the United States is consumed by commercial sector wastewater treatment. Clearly, the wastewater sector and other wastewater treatment providers, such as industry and ...
