10/29/14 webinar covered:

WERF’s ENER1C12 research on energy neutrality or “net zero” for water resource recovery facilities is aimed at characterizing the energy balances of common wastewater treatment configurations and evaluating the potential for employing best practices and innovative but demonstrated technologies to improve wastewater treatment energy balances. The research profiles success stories of energy neutral or near-neutral facilities and provides guidance to water resource recovery facilities on how they can follow the “roadmap” that will enable them to locate or benchmark themselves and chart their own path to net zero.

The Philadelphia Water Department will share its experiences and insights on striving for “net zero”.


  • Gustavo Queiroz, P.E., Black & Veatch
  • Ralph Eschborn, P.E., AECOM
  • Paul Kohl, P.E., Philadelphia Water Department
