The Water and Wastewater Companies for Climate Mitigation project works across local, national and international levels, and engages with national stakeholders around four pilot companies in Mexico, Peru, Thailand and Jordan. The objective is to use GHG emission-reducing technologies to improve the carbon balance of water and wastewater companies while maintaining or even improving service levels and improving these companies cost effectiveness.
Water and wastewater companies are typically energy intensive. This indicates excellent opportunities for improving energy efficiency and greatly reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through more energy-efficient systems, as well as recovering energy, nutrients and other materials from wastewater.
