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.
Unless simply tired of the subject, almost anyone would agree that in the 21st century energy efficiency is a matter of considerable importance to the process industries. But, as per usual, how to get from here to there can quickly become a matter of heated debate.
