Abstract:Rising energy costs are rapidly topping the political agenda around the world and have begun to impact wastewater operations for municipalities, private utilities and sanitary districts. While much of the focus in this issue has been placed on the energy supply side – such as solar and wind – not enough emphasis has been placed on the demand side: technologies that reduce energy consumption. The single largest energy consumer for most wastewater treatment facilities is the aeration system. This study seeks to determine the cost and performance benefits of retrofitting existing plants with newly developed aeration technology.
