Toward a net zero circular water economy -- What can we learn from decarbonization of the energy sector -- Greenhouse gases in the urban water cycle -- Operational optimization and control strategies for decarbonization in WRRFs -- Energy and resource recovery using the anaerobic digestion platform -- Carbon valorization using the microbial electrochemical technology platform -- Decarbonization potentials in nitrogen management -- Decarbonization potentials in phosphorus management in the water sector -- Decarbonization potentials using photobiological systems -- Sludge management and utilization for carbonization -- Decarbonization potentials in intensified water and wastewater systems using membrane-related technologies -- Natural treatment systems and integrated watershed management for decarbonization -- Microbial electrochemical communication in carbon and electron flow for CO2 methanation -- Thermal energy from wastewater -- Concept wastewater treatment plants in China -- Data science tools to enable decarbonization water and wastewater treatment systems -- Decarbonization policies and water sector opportunities -- Outlook for the carbon-negative circular water economy.

The water sector is in the middle of a paradigm shift from focusing on treatment and meeting discharge permit limits to integrated operation that also enables a circular water economy via water reuse, resource recovery, and system level planning and operation. While the sector has gone through different stages of such revolution, from improving energy efficiency to recovering renewable energy and resources, when it comes to the next step of achieving carbon neutrality or negative emission, it falls behind other infrastructure sectors such as energy and transportation. The water sector carries tremendous potential to decarbonize, from technological advancements, to operational optimization, to policy and behavioural changes. This book aims to fill an important gap for different stakeholders to gain knowledge and skills in this area and equip the water community to further decarbonize the industry and build a carbon-free society and economy. The book goes beyond technology overviews, rather it aims to provide a system level blueprint for decarbonization. It can be a reference book and textbook for graduate students, researchers, practitioners, consultants and policy makers, and it will provide practical guidance for stakeholders to analyse and implement decarbonization measures in their professions.
