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

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
