Finding Sustainable Energy Efficiency Solutions
Wastewater treatment plants are experiencing extreme challenges related to balancing increasing energy costs while meeting stricter discharge limits.
Wendel has been at the forefront in identifying economically sustainable retrofit programs that help wastewater plants reduce their environmental impact while also saving money. In addition, many of these solutions have enhanced the performance of these aging facilities.
Wendel has completed work and is now tracking nine wastewater treatment systems that provide sewage treatment for approximately 290,000 residents.
As construction is completed, Wendel gathers data on the energy savings resulting from the implemented improvements. These savings are compared with the projected savings from the study phase. Most of the projects demonstrate significant savings of over $100,000 per year per facility.
