COURSE OVERVIEW

From January to May 2016, Henderson is leading a team of engineering students and faculty members from the University of Kansas in a feasibility study of water reclamation opportunities for the nation’s second—largest grocery store retailer (Kroger). The study looks closely at several common water sources currently going to drain (condensate, rainwater, RO blowdown) and how they might be used for secondary uses at the store. In particular, the research seeks to qualify the water steams in terms of quality and public safety, and where applicable, understand the economic opportunity of water reclamation projects through the United States. Audience members will be treated to the study findings, conclusions, as well as some discussion on next steps.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Understand how supermarkets use energy and what opportunities are available and impactful for significant energy cost reduction.

  2. Understand climate effects supermarket energy use and in particular how it affects a store’s need for heating while other end uses remain fairly constant.

  3. Utilize the proposed “Assessment Process” to determine the best options for reducing energy.

  4. Review case studies of various Energy Conservation Measures and understand their impact to energy use and O+M cost savings.
