Monitoring and diagnosis of energy consumption in wastewater treatment plants. A state of the art and proposals for improvement
In response to strong growth in energy intensive wastewater treatment, public agencies and industry began to explore and implement measures to ensure achievement of the targets indicated in the 2020 Climate and Energy ...
Transient and Persistent Energy Efficiency in the Wastewater Sector based on Economic Foundations
(International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE), 2020)
Given the increasing importance of the wastewater sector in terms of energy usage, the understanding of the level of energy efficiency of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is useful to both the industry itself as well ...
A systematic methodology for the robust quantification of energy efficiency at wastewater treatment plants featuring Data Envelopment Analysis
This article examines the potential benefits of using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) for conducting energy-efficiency assessment of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). WWTPs are characteristically heterogeneous (in size, ...
Is SCENA a good approach for side-stream integrated treatment from an environmental and economic point of view?
(Elsevier BV, 2017-09-06)
The environmental and economic benefits and burdens of including the first Short Cut Enhanced Nutrient Abatement (SCENA) into a real municipal wastewater treatment plant were evaluated using life cycle assessment (LCA) and ...
Environmental assessment of complex wastewater valorisation by polyhydroxyalkanoates production
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are biodegradable polymers with renewable origin that are expected to substitute conventional petrochemical plastics. However, before they are commercialized, life-cycle environmental validation ...
Can nitrogen removal be a win-win situation?

ENERWATER - A standard method for assessing and improving the energy efficiency of wastewater treatment plants
This paper describes the first methodology specifically tailored to estimate energy efficiency at wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Inspired by the cycle of continuous improvement, the method (i) precisely defines the ...
Energy efficiency of wastewater treatment plants. Overview of the literature and critical discussion of energy data
In response to strong growth in energy intensive wastewater treatment, public agencies and industry began to explore and implement measures to ensure achievement of the target indicated in the 2020 Climate and Energy ...
Comparative energy efficiency of Swiss wastewater treatment plants based on economic foundations
As the number of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) increases worldwide and the effluent quality requirements become more demanding, the issue of energy efficiency has been attracting increasing attention from an environmental ...
