This technical report provides information for primary and some secondary energy use and primary energy conservation in the EPA municipal wastewater treatment construction grants program. Primary energy is the energy used in the operation of a facility, such as the electricity used in the various processes and space heating. Secondary energy for the purposes of this report is defined as the energy required to manufacture chemicals and other consumable materials used in municipal wastewater treatment. Secondary energy requirements for treatment plant construction materials, such as concrete and steel, were not determined in this study. In addition to identifying energy utilization and conservation for a wide range of treatment alternatives available to meet the standards, the report will aid in screening alternatives for their energy reduction potential. The report should be useful to municipalities, since municipal operations including energy costs are financed by user charges.
