Multi-criteria decision making for the selection of technologies: resource recovery from wastewater

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

The population growth, significant boost in urbanisation, and reflection of consumption habits based on change in living standards have an important role in the projected water stress. This situation encourages the researchers in the field to investigate the technologies to reclaim the wasterwater and the shift from the conventional wastewater treatment technologies to novel resource recovery technologies. The selection of technologies for wastewater treatment has a great impact on the society, environment and the implementation cost of these technologies. NEREUS Project aims to develop a Decision Support Tool (DST) to assist the decision makers (policy makers, water authorities, process engineers) in the implementation of the wastewater recovery technologies considering the economic, social, environmental and technical impacts. In this presentation, we present the DST conceptual framework, the multi criteria decision making optimisation model, and the Life Cycle Analysis for wastewater recovery considering the economic, social, environmental and technical dimensions.
