Effluent contains energy. Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) receive large quantities of a source of energy: effluent. So why not use the energy that comes in at one end, to supply energy to processes that require energy at the other? This is already taking place at the bigger STPs, but could be rolled out more widely. In theory, wastewater contains 8 times more energy than is needed to purify it. Technically, it is possible to change the energy balance from -100% to +200%!
