Title: Scoping Report: Advanced Technologies for Multi-Load Washers in Hospitality and Healthcare

Abstract

The purpose of this demonstration project is to quantify the energy savings and water efficiency potential of commercial laundry wastewater recycling systems and low-temperature detergent supply systems to help promote the adoption of these technologies in the commercial sector. This project will create a set of technical specifications for efficient multi-load laundry systems (both new and retrofit) tailored for specific applications and/or sectors (e.g., hospitality, health care). The specifications will be vetted with the appropriate Better Buildings Alliance (BBA) members (e.g., Commercial Real Estate Energy Alliance, Hospital Energy Alliance), finalized, published, and disseminated to enable widespread technology transfer in the industry and specifically among BBA partners.

  • The objective of this demonstration project was to evaluate market-ready retrofit technologies for reducing the energy and water use of multi-load washers in healthcare and hospitality facilities. Specifically, this project evaluated laundry wastewater recycling technology in the hospitality sector and ozone laundry technology in both the healthcare and hospitality sectors. This report documents the demonstration of ozone laundry system installations at the Charleston Place Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina, and the Rogerson House assisted living facility in Boston, Massachusetts.

Specifically, this project evaluated laundry wastewater recycling technology in the hospitality sector and ozone laundry technology in both the healthcare and hospitality sectors. This report documents the demonstration of a wastewater recycling system installed in the Grand Hyatt Seattle.
  • This three-volume manual presents technical guidelines for electric utility load research. Special attention is given to issues raised by the load data reporting requirements of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 and to problems faced by smaller utilities that are initiating load research programs. The manual includes guides to load research literature and glossaries of load research and statistical terms. In Volume 3, special load research procedures are presented for solar, wind, and cogeneration technologies.
  • The objectives of this report are to present the facility description, plant layouts and additional information which define the conceptual engineering design, and to provide performance and cost estimates for the air-cooled pressurized fluidized bed (PFB) power plant. Following the introductory comments, the results of the study of the air-cooled PFB power plant are summarized in Section 2. In Section 3, a description of plant systems and facilities is provided. Section 4 includes pertinent performance information and assessments of availability, natural resource requirements and environmental impact. Estimates of capital costs, operating and maintenance (O and M) costs and cost ofmore » electricity are presented in Section 5. Bechtel comments regarding the plant configuration and performance are provided in Section 6. The design and cost estimate reports which were prepared by Westinghouse for items within their scope of responsibility are included as Appendices A and B, respectively. Appendix C is the power plant equipment list for systems within the BGI scope. The design and cost estimate classifications chart referenced in Section 5 is included as Appendix D. 7 references, 19 figures, 13 tables.« less
