Wastewater treatment plants consume about 3 percent annually from America’s electric grid, according to the federal Environmental Protection Agency. This demand is only anticipated to grow as populations increase, and state and federal regulations tighten. But what is the biggest energy burden? Aeration basin blowers.
Up to 60% of a plant’s total energy usage can be attributed to large air blowers used in aeration basins – which throttle through millions of gallons of influent wastewater per day.
