Standard method and online tool for assessing and improving the energy efficiency of wastewater treatment plants

Deliverables

Energy Monitoring Systems installed.

The pilot plants will be availed with an energy monitoring system (Hardware & software). The system will monitor and record the consumption in the different processes: i.e. pretreatment, primary treatment. secondary treatment, tertiary treatment (if present) and sludge line

Online method v2

Based on D3.4, the final version will be published online in the project website

Benchmark database

With the objective to create reference data it will be published one online database. Typical data that will show is: description of the WWTPs, type of technology, influent/ effluent analysis results, flow, annual base consumption and others.

Standardisation stakeholder workshop

Organization of a joint standardisation stakeholders workshop.

Online method v1

Based on D3.3, the final version will be published online in the project website

Recommendations for a future directive

Technical report will be delivered and published to address the main issues present for the creation of an EU directive

Study of published energy data

Document containing data of at least 500 WWTPs, from where best practices and best cases scenarios will be identified

Project website

The project website will allow two functions: public dissemination and project collaboration among partners in a private area within the same web

Dissemination video

A promotional video will be produced to highlight the importance of energy reduction in waste water treatment
