A Future Without Waste by Dr. Art Umble

“There is no waste in our future!” That was the declaration of Water Environment Federation (WEF) President Ed McCormick at this year’s “Energy Positive Water Resource Recovery” symposium. Though a terrific challenge to us all, it’s not out of reach if we start today and take responsibility for leading the charge. The question is where do we start? Much of the answer lies in changing behavior away from “business as usual” and toward a radical embrace of full recovery of energy, water, and nutrients resources — primarily in that order.

Americas wastewater practice leader, Dr. Art Umble, discusses the energy-water nexus and emerging energy-efficient wastewater applications in a guest column published by Water Online.
