Reaching Net-Zero Energy At WWTPs Includes Construction Activities
Abstract:Achieving Net Zero at wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) requires a thorough analysis of all components consuming energy on the plant site. This includes all types of structures, from electrical buildings to operations and maintenance buildings. This paper evaluates one of the types of building materials that is gaining prominence in the industrial sector, Insulated Concrete Forms. Contractors and a representative of the Insulating Concrete Form Association (ICFA) were conducted to determine potential applications, constructability, economic feasibility, and limitations of using this building material and technique. The costs were compared with constructing metal stud buildings.
