Power from wastewater treatment plants

Wastewater treatment plants are an important component of urban cities. With exponential industrial and population growth, the volume of material these plants have to accommodate in future will grow by several orders of magnitude. This amounts to consumption of large amount of fossil fuels based power. Escalation of fossil fuel cost is a deterrent to many wastewater treatment plants. Heat pump and heat exchanger technologies  that is commonly adopted in geothermal industry can be integrated with wastewater treatment plants to  implement CDM in several urban cities and make cities green for the future generation.
