Water Abstraction
Consumes up to 100 kWh/pers/ year (depends on pumping) Topographical energy may be recovered up to 0.3 kWh/m3 per 100m elevation GHG emissions from energy consumption can be up to 231 kg CO2e/pers/ year
Drinking Water Treatment
Consumes up to 3.5 kWh/m3 (desalination) or approx. 130 kWh/pers/year GHG emissions from energy consumption can be up to 8.1 kg CO2e/m3 supplied
Drinking Water Distribution
Consumes up to 30 kWh/pers/ year (depends on terrain) Topographical energy may be recovered up to 0.3 kWh/m3 per 100m elevation GHG emissions from energy consumption can be up to 69.3 kg CO2e/pers/ year
End users
Consumes up to 1 000 KWh/pers/year in heating Heat can be recovered from showers up to 150 kWh/pers /year GHG emissions from energy consumption can be up to 2311 kg CO2e/pers/ year
Wastewater Collection
Energy consumes up to 20 kWh/pers/ year (depends on terrain and rainwater) Heat can be recovered from sewers up to 100 kWh/pers /year GHG emissions from energy consumption can be up to 46 kg CO2e/pers/ year
Wastewater Treatment
Conventional activated sludge treatment with nutrient removal consumes 25 to 100 kWh/pers/year Conventional activated sludge treatment without nutrient removal consumes 10 to 30 kWh/pers/year Energy recovery from Sludge can be up to 25 kWh/pers/year GHG emissions from energy consumption can be up to 231 kg CO2e/pers/ year
Reuse Water Treatment
Reuse water treatment generally consists of advanced treatment of conventional wastewater treatment plant effluent via physical and chemical processes, depending upon the reuse water application. In some cases, the reuse water treatment is integrated into the conventional wastewater treatment to provide a higher quality effluent, such as in membrane bioreactor...
Reuse Water Distribution
Reuse water distribution is typically performed by either conveying water in a separate pipe network from the drinking water, or transporting reuse water via trucks from the treatment facility to end users. In direct potable reuse, the recycled water can be introduced and distributed through the drinking water distribution system...
Wastewater Discharge
Discharge of untreated wastewater produces GHG emissions up to 45 kg CO2e/pers/ year, or three times more than the emissions associated to conventional treatment...
