Energy Efficient System Design for Wastewater Treatment Plants: A System Splitting Approach

Feb. 3, 2015

Energy is the single highest operating cost in a wastewater treatment plant, with energy to operate blowers for aeration being the single highest energy consumer. This paper outlines the traditional approach to wastewater treatment plant design and the efficiency problems associated with it, as well as explains system-splitting, an alternate design approach with key efficiency gains.
