Abstract:
Wastewater heat recovery in sewer systems is recognized as renewable energy (EU, 2018) and it can contribute to the energy transition, but so far, there is no practical assessment method for the pre-evaluation of in-sewer sites. Projects in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria show that with correct planning and design, systems are operated economically, and temperature-related cleaning requirements of the wastewater treatment plant can be met. To identify suitable sewer sites, energy as well as wastewater management factors have to be assessed. However, available methods are independent of one another and they are limited either to the alligation alternate or are based on empirical values, or are very work intense, such as model applications. This master thesis and the evaluation method developed are intended to close this gap. In the present work relevant energy and wastewater related aspects has been derived, based on selected materials, existing evaluation approaches, one measurement campaign and reference systems. These aspects became one easy-to-use and transparent relevance tree analysis summarized and the practical feasibility has been investigated in the study area of the present measurement campaign. The result is an aid for wastewater operators, energy supply companies and other actors, an applicable pre-evaluation method for experts and less experienced people, which facilitate the determination of suitable in sewer sites and can contribute to decision making.
