The technical and economic feasibility of using waste heat (i.e. from cooling water or flue gases) to improve conventional and advanced wastewater treatment processes was investigated. Important sources of waste heat were identified and the effects of increased temperature on wastewater treatment processes were explored. A cost/benefit analysis indicated favorable application of waste heat in conventional wastewater treatment plants adjacent to heat sources where at least secondary treatment is employed and the capacity is greater than 5 MGD. Advanced treatment processes also showing benefits from waste heat use were reverse osmosis, carbon adsorption, and ion exchange.
