Environment Improvement and Water Resource Development Business Opportunities: Urban Wastewater Reclamation, Reuse and Biosolids

Drivers for Urban Wastewater Reclamation and Reuse
• Water Scarcity – strengthens government’s will to search for alternative water resources Ecological Improvement – larger scale of water reclamation and reuse projects Need for Public Acceptance – Safety Supervision & Engineering Measures Encourage Use of Reclaimed Water – Water Tariff & Restrictive Use of Fresh Water Technology Innovation and Development – make it possible for extensive application

Environment Improvement and Water Resource Development Business Opportunities: Urban Wastewater Reclamation, Reuse and Biosolids

Urban Wastewater Reclamation & Reuse -- Technology and Trends

Extensive Reuse of Reclaimed water has promoted the development of various treatment technologies and processes

More and more health related applications of reclaimed water will involve extensive application of membrane & biological technologies

Technologies / Processes with easy operational management and low cost will be preferred

Higher and higher expectation on safety aspects of technologies / processes

Environment Improvement and Water Resource Development Business Opportunities: Urban Wastewater Reclamation, Reuse and Biosolids
Government investment on construction / operation of related facilities may hinder emerging business opportunities

Reclaimed water reuse can mitigate water scarcity problems

Marginal cost of reclaimed water reuse should be shared by users

Reclaimed Water Reuse – Investment and Pricing
Reclaimed water price should be set to realize full-cost recovery 2011/5/22 Reclaimed water price should be adjusted according to market needs 4

Reclaimed water tariff should be incorporated into the water tariff system

Environment Improvement and Water Resource Development Business Opportunities: Urban Wastewater Reclamation, Reuse and Biosolids Biosolids is Recognized as a RESOURCE than WASTE.

Trends
Reduce sludge production via application of various technologies Utilize nutrients, organics and energy in sludge Carbon Footprint evaluation will become critical factors in sludge management Local Conditions and Sustainable Development will be main factors in sludge management
