Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $25,000 to USA, Canada, and International educational, research, and for-profit entities, agencies, and consultants to explore the economic and scientific benefits of wastewater distribution systems. Funding is intended to support research related to integrating sewage thermal energy use (STEU) and other innovative technologies regarding wastewater and their associated solid waste into distributed systems, and to scope out a full-scale research project for distributed/decentralized systems in this subject area.

Economic research for fully integrated water--energy-waste systems at the appropriate scale (e.g., at the neighborhood and onsite building scale) is lacking in the industry. The costs and benefits of STEU for WRRFs, decentralized/distributed water systems, and the community would assist decision-makers examining opportunities to maximize both water and energy for sustainability. A key aspect to be included in the analysis would be the role of geographical location in the effective application of this technology. An assessment of the technology market in these areas would also be useful for utilities considering decentralized system programs in their service areas, as well as urban planning and development professionals. 

Tasks will include:

  • Complete a literature review of decentralized integrated water-energy-waste efforts in North America, Australia, and Europe.
  • Conduct an economic analysis of STEU and other emerging water-energy-waste systems for distributed systems.
  • Conduct telephone interviews with 20 to 25 subject matter experts (SME) from the engineering, architectural, and planning community about issues and research needs.
  • Draft a research agenda for integrated water-energy-waste systems at the distributed/decentralized scale.
