In the past, wastewater treatment plants were designed to optimise treatment performance to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Solids management accounts for 20-30 per cent of total plant energy demand. This project will assess solids treatment and transportation / end-use scenarios to better understand the interrelationships and dependencies between energy (usage and generation), treatment processing, transportation and land utilisation in terms of reducing CO2 emissions and optimising energy efficiency.
When #retrofitting a #home to save #energy and lower #carbon #emissions knowing your #climate zone and best approach is key.
