Net-Zero Energy Solutions for Water Resource Recovery Facilities
10/29/2014 - 1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern
WERF’s ENER1C12 research on energy neutrality or “net zero” for water
resource recovery facilities is aimed at characterizing the energy balances of
common wastewater treatment configurations and evaluating the potential for
employing best practices and innovative but demonstrated technologies to
improve wastewater treatment energy balances. The research profiles success
stories of energy neutral or near-neutral facilities and provides guidance to
water resource recovery facilities on how they can follow the “roadmap” that
will enable them to locate or benchmark themselves and chart their own path to
The Philadelphia Water Department will share its experiences and insights
on striving for “net zero”. Topics will
- Placing your facility on
the roadmap (benchmarking).
- Identifying relevant
short- and long-term technologies and practices to optimize performance.
- Evaluating technologies
- Charting and embarking on
a course to energy neutrality.
