Visiongain’ has launched a new energy report Wastewater Treatment to Energy (WWTtE) Market Report : Forecasts for CAPEX, OPEX, and by End Use (Power, Heat, Biomethane) By Region, Plus Number of Installations By Leading Country, Plus Analysis of Leading Companies Developing technologies Such As Anaerobic Digestion (AD)
Sewage sludge is the primary waste product created in the process of cleaning industrial and residential wastewater in wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). The sludge contains the organic solid particles removed from the wastewater, which is rich in nutrients and energy. The organic matter in raw wastewater contains almost 10 times the energy need to treat it which covers the energy demand for most WWTPs. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a proven technology for the treatment of sewage sludge and produces a biogas which is considered a renewable energy. Biogas is primarily made up of methane and carbon dioxide and trace amounts of nitrogen and ammonia. Biogas from wastewater treatment is considered as a carbon-neutral fuel source. There is global pressure on governments to take action on climate change is a key driver of renewable energy policies. If fossil fuels are displaced using biogas, then there is a net reduction in carbon emissions.
Wastewater treatment to energy (WWTtE) facilities will continue to receive high levels of investment and increasing operational costs over the next ten years. This is reflective of the untapped energy resource found in wastewater and the cost-effective way to run a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP).
The visiongain report analyst commented “Government measures to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions along with strict laws against wastewater handling will embellish the industry growth. Advanced wastewater treatment will play a vital role in meeting the challenges of ongoing chemical intensification. Advancement of treatment techniques has the huge potential to significantly curb the emissions. Limited availability of finance, pipeline projects and the investment risk associated with WWTPs has limited the industry growth. However, national renewable energy support mechanisms and optimisation of the technology have driven stable investment. Visiongain anticipates that North America led by the US will see sustained levels of high investment owing to strict government measures against waste handling. Increasingly stringent environmental regulations in emerging economies are widening the scope of the market but will not significantly impact the global market over the next decade.”
Leading companies featured in the report who are developing Anaerobic Digestion (AD) facilities include RWL Water Group, Kemira Oyj, Malmberg Water AB, Xylem Inc, APROVIS Energy Systems, Veolia Group, AAT Biogas Technology, Hitachi Zosen INOVA, PlanET Biogas
& GE Water.

Large proven oil & gas reserves of Canada coupled with growing investments in the building the country’s oil & gas infrastructure is expected to augment the demand for Canadian oil & gas. Favourable government policies and high demand for LNG from countries other than the U.S. is also anticipated to drive demand over the forecast period.
