Encore Energy Systems has announced plans to make their patented grey water geothermal solutions available to the wastewater treatment industry "Down Under." Wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are expanding to meet demand the world over, and grey water reuse is becoming a major player in the renewable energy sector.

Grey water is a valuable asset for many communities throughout the world as WWTP's are sourcing solutions for customers' demands and finding new ways to deal with drought situations and expanding urban infrastructure.

Brian Mello, Sr. VP of Encore Energy Systems said, "Being a WWTP engineer can be a thankless job. People take water for granted. Water resources are finite, so reuse comes into play, but it doesn't come cheap, the processing is expensive, utility costs from operations are rising sharply, all the while there is increasing pressure to satisfy environmental issues facing these municipalities.

"However, their efforts have a surprising environmental benefit, geothermal heating and cooling. We have the ability to eliminate the heating and cooling costs from plant operations through our patented grey water geothermal heat exchangers. In addition, as pressurized grey water lines are installed in cities, businesses may tap this resource for their own HVAC requirements. We extract the thermal properties from the water and return it to the line, where it may be reused again. WWTP's may recover water processing costs by charging for the use of this resource, providing a welcomed recurring revenue source to aid in recouping operational costs."
