Waste Heat Recovery Resource Page | Department of Energy
The most cost-effective opportunities for sewage heat recovery exist when there are major sewer upgrades, and the heat recovery component can be integrated into a larger project. Otherwise, existing sewer facilities must be accessed by excavating the sewer and building an underground structure to access the sewage. The amount of sewer heat available is determined from the flow and temperature of the sewage
And thanks to the innovators at International Wastewater Systems and their patented SHARC™ Sewage Heat Recovery System, we can now recycle that wasted energy and place it back into our buildings! According to the US Department of Energy 350 billion Kwh worth of hot water is discarded through our drains in North America every year.

the system are: heat exchangers, water-to-water heat pumps, gas boilers and heat buffer tanks. One innovative part of the demonstrator is the heat exchanger, which is installed inside the sewage pipe. This indirect heat extraction technique is used in two of the demonstrator sites (Wahn and Mülheim).
Jul 31, 2020 · Sewage water can be used to recover excess heat for heating or for cooling buildings using different types of heat pumps and is thus viewed as a renewable heat source. The use of waste water has high energy potential mostly since the temperature of the sewage water is relatively high, usually above 10 °C, which makes it a good source of heating.
Waste Heat Recovery System (WHRS) - MAN Energy Solutions
Heat recovery from sewage water Heat4Cool Below the surface, inside the sewer there is a hidden and rarely used energy source. This is the communal sewage water. The temperature of communal wastewater (collected and channeled through the sewage system) is
We have developed our own HUBER Solution ThermWin for heat recovery from sewage: We withdraw sewage from the sewer, screen it, pump it through above-ground Heat Exchangers, and then return it back into the sewer. Because we screen and pump the sewage, we can use compact and cost-effective heat exchangers, wherein we generate a well-defined and turbulent flow for efficient heat transfer.
