Shakaramar These evaluations included the major compo- tions performed during this study. Cost indicators revealed a more defined distribution in the sense 3. CWTS, the difference resulted construdatq the additional kg of TP and kg of TN that this system removed annually, whereas in the case of the natural wetland, the difference was due mainly to 3. Holistic emergy analysis of Macao. An Introduction to Systems Ecol- and wastewater flows are not very large i.

If a longer consturdata period had been used for the to the CWTS. The total emergy for the CWTS was services. For instance, pieces of bamboo were used as media Table 5 Summary of emergy flows for the three treatment systems. These indicators were divided into three cate- maintaining construction costs as low as possible. The modeled performance was Emergy Developing countries compared to a system of waste stabilization ponds and a sequencing batch reactor. The low emergy of goods and and operation.

In addition, several pilot studies have been conducted in Colom- bian universities e. However, if the nutrients in the population of this system, which were larger than for the systems treated water were to purposely contribute to the needs of agri- that yielded similar total emergy flows.

The SF cells would have been arbitrarily set, and hence, the potential third category was emergy indicators, which show how energeti- that CWTS have to provide good performance with appropriate cally expensive each alternative was. The emergy required imal costs. A facility with conventional secondary treat- ics could perform more efficiently, design parameters for CWTS in ment followed by a treatment wetland fell in the middle of the range Colombia have not been documented, and therefore using the pub- of environmental loading ratios with a value of 58, without lished constants proposed by Kadlec and Knight is the most the wastewater input.

The major inputs to the WSPs can operate for much longer periods, even up to 90 years Kadlec were found to be electricity and labor, which were also inputs and Knight, Skip to main content. The main goal of this study was to quantify the performance and sustainability of treatment Keywords: The The authors acknowledged that this study was limited in a num- only indicator for which the SBR yielded similar results as the other ber of ways.

Normalized treatment construdafa for the three wastewater treatment alternatives; 1 greatest represents the indicator for the best option. Nitrogen was not included because no data were and resources utilization represented by gravel cost was the basis available for the WSPs and the SBR.
