Hydra captures heat energy from the natural warmth of the treated water.

Every waste water stream in the world has an abundance of latent thermal energy.  Were the whole of the available energy to be fully utilized,  approximately 20 percent of the heating, cooling and hot water requirements of the source city could be met!   \

Each treatment facility can harvest this resource.   By converting the wastewater management plant into the anchor of a closed loop district energy system, we are able to acquire and sell energy captured from the waste stream.  A simple and straightforward radiator to radiator capture mechanism is able to realize 1 MW of heat energy from each million gallons or 3 800 m3 of treated water per day.  In southern climates the energy harvest doubles and even triples!

By converting the used water management plant into the anchor of a closed loop district energy shared system, we are able to sell the heat energy captured from the natural warmth of what was, formerly, discarded wastewater.
