Abstract

Great progress has been made to recover renewable energy from wastewater using new technologies and processes, but most methods only reduce fossil fuel consumption and the associated carbon emission. There have been limited discussion on estimating the potential of using wastewater as both an energy source and a carbon sink via active and direct CO2 mitigation. This presentation investigates the possibility of using wastewater treatment process for direct CO2 capture and conversion to value-added chemicals while concurrently removing carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus.
