WRF issues two energy-related RFPs

The WateReuse Foundation announced on 27 January 2009 two new requests for proposals (RFPs) for research projects involving desalination and water reuse related to energy production and use.

Both have a deadline of 10 March 2009.

Water Reuse Requirements and Opportunities for Energy and Biofuels Production (WRF-08-12)

This project seeks to clarify water-reuse opportunities by determining the potential application and requirements for using recycled and other non-traditional waters in energy production. More particularly, this project will:
  • Help establish water quality criteria
  • Survey and assess cost/benefit trade-offs
  • Define impacts on human health and the environment
  • Identify opportunities, issues, gaps, barriers and areas needing further development or investment to help

  • Project Manager: Caroline Sherony

    Renewable Energy Technologies and Energy Efficiency Strategies: Guidelines for Water Desalination and Reuse Systems to Optimize Energy Use and Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions. (WRF-08-13)

    This project seeks to provide US advanced water treatment facility managers information on ways to increase the use of renewable energy sources, develop management strategies to reduce peak power use, optimize advanced treatment technologies to save on energy and costs, and reduce the overall output of greenhouse gases (GHG) at utilities.
