RP2017: Energy Benchmarking for Efficient, Low-Carbon Water Recycling Operations

Project leader name: 
Dr Michael Short, UniSA
Project status: 
Current
Project period: 
01/2015 to 01/2018

Recycled water systems must be further optimised to improve their energy and resource use efficiency, and to reduce the associated intensity of carbon emissions and operational costs. Using a range of full-scale Australian water recycling facilities as case studies, this project will employ a novel benchmarking approach to characterise current recycled water systems' performance and drive future optimisations.

Research outputs will directly contribute toward more energy-efficient, cost-effective and lower CO2 emissions recycled water supply in Australia and will deliver a new methodology to enable similar optimisations internationally.
