Wastewater Resource Recovery Prize offers up to $1 million
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Water Security Grand Challenge will host a webinar on the Wastewater Resource Recovery Prize (WRRP), including Phase I winners, competition goals, and how those goals support DOE’s WSGC.
The Wastewater Resource Recovery Prize offers up to $1 million in cash prizes. It is designed to develop innovative, cutting-edge water treatment technology system configurations and business plans that will help lower the ultimate cost of treatment by extracting additional value from wastewater.
Through this prize competition, DOE is seeking novel, systems-based solutions from multi-disciplinary teams to implement resource recovery at small- to medium-sized water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs). By presenting cost-effective and innovative facility engineering solutions, WRRFs can progress toward the goal of doubling resource recovery and accelerate the transition from conventional wastewater treatment to a resource recovery model for municipal wastewater across the United States.
The webinar will include a brief introduction to the Water Security Grand Challenge, an overview of WRRP, pitches from Phase I WRRP winners, and an interactive audience Q&A.
During this webinar you will learn more about: ● WRRP’s goals and how they support the DOE’s WSGC; ● Phase I winners and their proposed technological solutions; ● Wastewater resource recovery options; ● Potential opportunities for leveraging and/or replicating these solutions.
