Abstract

Current research aims to explore how WWTPs can potentially become energy-neutral in the UK through deployment of bio-solid energy and optimisation of biogas generation process. The findings confirm that process optimisation has a positive effect on energy-independence of WWTPs while other renewable energies (excluding biogas) do not significantly contribute a notable share in WWTPs. Furthermore, it is concluded that the idea of an energy-neutral WWTP is technically viable but various hindrances still exist on the way. Finally, a model is proposed for an energy-neutral WWTP in the UK which can be rolled out to suit almost every other geographical location in the world, subject to minor modifications.
