EPA’s Emerging Technologies Report on Wastewater Treatment (PDF)
This technology guide will help municipal wastewater treatment system owners and operators find information on emerging wastewater treatment and in plant wet weather management technologies to help them meet their current and future treatment requirements. Featured technologies can be used to reduce the capital and operation costs of wastewater treatment, provide more advanced levels nutrient removal, and better management of wet weather flows at the treatment plant. The document identifies cost effective innovative and embryonic technologies, or established technologies with innovative applications, as well as an extensive list of fully established technologies. Technical and cost data for more than sixty innovative technologies and more than twenty five embryonic technologies are provided. February 2008
