Water treatment and sewerage works face multiple environmental challenges, however they also hold a significant potential to produce and/or utilise bioenergy and are a key focus for companies and governments looking to reach net zero. Breakdown of biological materials during the treatment process releases considerable amounts of carbon dioxide and methane which require mitigation or capture to prevent release into the atmosphere. In addition to this it is possible to use anaerobic digestion to produce biogas and biomethane from densified and dewatered components such as sewage or wastewater sludge. This gas can be used to generate sustainable electricity and heat to run the treatment facilities and local infrastructure, or upgraded to be injected into regional gas grids.
