Water treatment plants are inherently energy-intensive facilities. The water treatment process, including pumping, filtration, aeration, and disinfection, requires massive amounts of electricity to function. In fact, the water sector is one of the largest energy consumers globally, attributing a significant portion of energy-related emissions from water treatment processes.
That’s why it’s important that all water treatment plant systems have optimized equipment, process design and advanced technologies to ensure they run at the maximum efficiency, especially at a time when energy prices have been known to soar.
But this does not come easy; all infrastructure and processes need to be redeveloped to align with more sustainable approaches which often require disruptions in services, and of course, a significant investment. If successful, the benefits will lead to financial savings, a reduced carbon footprint and improved resource efficiency in the water sector.
