This work presents a novel methodology for sustainability assessment of biological wastewater treatment systems (Bio-WWTs) promoting the energy valorization of their by-products (e.g. biogas). The methodology combines analytical identification of principles-criteria of sustainability (PCS), life cycle assessment (LCA) and energy analysis (EmA) to obtain a set of sustainable development indicators (SDIs). Synergy among single SDIs is required to confirm an overall sustainable condition.
