Wastewater Management

Why Wastewater Management is the Need of the Hour

| Author / Editor: Pankaj Mishra / Dominik Stephan

Energy management helps optimize energy use and reduce related costs by: monitoring, measuring and reporting energy consumption; appraising and comparing sourcing contracts against real consumption; assessing alternative onsite power generation from sources such as biogas from wastewater, hydraulic turbines and solar power; comparing energy use and costs across plants, processes and loads to discover opportunities for improving energy efficiency (for example, aeration tanks account for between 30 per cent and 60 per cent of a plant’s and site’s total energy consumption); drawing up targets and action plans to boost energy management.

Tackle the Water Challenge

The challenge is huge, but not intractable. Meeting it will require political will and technological and policy innovation – but as with water crises everywhere, India no longer has the luxury of inaction. There is cause for hope. India’s investment in water and sanitation, including treatment systems, is still low but has increased over the past decade but if India is to ensure overall progress, it must manage its water resources efficiently and this is only possible if we take wastewater treatment seriously.
