Potable reuse is growing rapidly in the US and globally. It typically uses significantly less energy than seawater desalination and can occasionally use less energy than other alternative water supplies. Despite the prevalence of energy recovery efforts in seawater reverse osmosis applications, few potable reuse plants are implementing these practices. Hesitations include the fear of a long payback period or higher maintenance, but those perspectives are outdated based on the current equipment available. New isobaric energy recovery devices can make potable reuse more sustainable and affordable, leading to significant cost and energy savings.
