Reducing the carbon footprint of sewage pumping stations

Monday, 27 August, 2012


Carbon is 'produced' whenever a crew jumps into the truck to go to a site, whenever the pumps are energised and running. There are, however, vastly improved uses of energy, and hence reduced carbon production, when self-priming pumps are used instead of submersible pumps.

This white paper looks at just the major 'measurable' areas of efficiency loss, the effect of 'excess choking' and the impact larger crews have on the amount of carbon produced by a hypothetical municipality having 100 pumping stations.
