GLRPPR Sector Resource: Wastewater recycling and heat reclamation at the Red Lion Central Laundry, Portland, Oregon

Title:
Wastewater recycling and heat reclamation at the Red Lion Central Laundry, Portland, Oregon

Abstract:
This report discusses water, energy, and cost savings that can be achieved in a commercial laundry through the use of a wastewater recycling and heat recovery system. Cost savings are achieved through reductions in water use, reduction in sewage charges, reductions in water heating energy, and potential reductions in water treatment chemicals. This report provides an economic analysis of the impact of capital investment, daily consumption, and local utility rates on the payback period.
