Extracting Thermal Energy from Wastewater
Join us in-person or virtually for the Agribusiness Forum!
New technologies are enabling wastewater to be a major, cost-effective source of renewal energy. Today, wastewater energy extraction is being used in Europe, Canada, and a few places in the United States to reduce heating and cooling operating costs by up to 80 percent and reduce carbon emissions by an equal amount.
In 2021, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) released its evaluation of a Sharc Wastewater Recovery System. A Sharc System provides the new 151,300 sq ft DC Water headquarters building with the source energy for a combination of heating, air conditioning and water heating. https://www.epri.com/research/sectors/technology/results/3002020656
Learn more about thermal wastewater recovery with Lynn Mueller, inventor and CEO of Sharc Energy Systems, and Saul Kinter, Business Development Program Manager at DC Water, which provides drinking water, sewage collection and sewage treatment for Washington, D.C. and its metropolitan region. Participants will explore the economics and impact of thermal wastewater extraction, including those for food production.
Space for the in-person component is limited to the first 20 registers. Complimentary coffee provided for all in-person attendees.
