Interest is growing for recovering resources from wastewater

Feb. 29, 2024
Stantec Executive VP Ryan Roberts explains how resource recovery is just one of many trends showing revenue growth opportunities can align with utility sustainability initiatives.

Wastewater treatment systems collect and treat flows of wastewater, but not all the qualities of those flows are actually a waste. Interest from wastewater utility managers and engineers continues to grow in how to use that waste to generate energy and repurpose nutrients treated out of the water for other beneficial uses.

Ryan Roberts, executive vice president of water for Stantec, explains this is one of a number of business growth areas that he and his company see for the future of the water and wastewater industries.
