Wastewater treatment intelligence the need for r d facilities to master the future

Wastewater treatment intelligenceThe need for R&D facilities to master the future.


Background

Background

  • > 2 billion people have water shortage

  • Diseases due to bad water quality

  • Millions lack proper waste-water treatment

  • Deterioration of quantity and quality of natural water systems

  • Agriculture uses 2/3 of the water that is consumed

  • Increasing water demand for industrial growth

  • New regulations (e.g. EU)

  • Use of chemicals in water treatment  <1% recycling

  • Request of use of renewable energy sources

  • Sustainablegrowth and development

     Clear link to wastewater treatment


What we have a treatment facility

What we have: A treatment facility

Problems/Challenges

  • The water sector is a major energy user

  • GHG emissions

  • Treated water is not used

  • Outflows may contain pollutants, viruses, pathogens etc.

  • Sludgeseen as a problem

GHG out

Sewage

works

Treated

Water out

Wastewater in

Sludge out

What we want a production facility

What we want: A production facility

Opportunities

  • Waste as resource

  • Net energy production

  • Nutrients recovery/reuse

  • Improvedtreatment

  • Water reuse (non-potable reuse/augmentation of potable water)

  • Sustainable production of energy and resources

  • Market opportunitets

Which way to go

Which way to go?

  • e.g. forecasted energy usage by the water sector [%]

    (British Council for Science & Technology 2009)

  • New approaches and concept shift a necessity!

  • This implies R&D and market opportunities!


Which technologies approaches

Which technologies/approaches?

  • Resources efficient treatment technologies

    Soft sensors | Anaerobic treatment | Anammox | Side stream treatment | Advanced membrane technologies | Process control and modelling | …

  • Technologies for recovery and reuse

    Nutrient recovery from ashes | Nutrients in sludge/sorbent | Water reuse/ Irrigation (nutrient rich effluent) | Industrial water | Potable water | Augmentation of potable water| Removal of pharmaceuticals, pathogens, viruses etc. | Online water quality monitoring | …

  • Energy production & carbon neutral/negative processes

    Flow separation | Increased sludge production | Enhanced Sludge digestion (also co-digestion) | Sewage digestion | Gasification/burning | Microbiological fuel cell | Algae treatment | …

  • Key ingredient: Combination and system integration with a holistic perspective of these different technologies/approaches to meet different requirements.


What other ingredients are needed

What other ingredients are needed?

  • Stakeholder involvement (companies, authorities, research organisations, associations, sewage plants, etc.)

  • Basic and applied R&D partners

  • Innovation Platform

  • Demonstrators

  • Approach and Knowledge Transfer Networks

  • Improving skills base/Education

  • Public dialogue/involvement

  • International co-operation and collaboration

     Optimal if you could find all these at the same location!
