Development of low electricity consumption water purification plants using renewable energies

Objective



In Europe's rural areas problems of drinking water quality are still existing. Many little villages and rural settings don't comply with standards particularly concerning biological parameters. Renewable energies should offer the possibility to purify this drinking water. Main objective of this research is the integration of renewable energies in biological water treatment systems in two ways:
- Development of a pico hydroelectric system adapted to UV treatment
- Development of stand alone photovoltaic UV treatment system (low electricity consumption, working following the demand). The different phases of this research will be:
- Optimization and adaptation of UV treatment to renewable energy supply
- Sizing of PV system including energy storage and sizing of pico- hydroelectric system
- Realization of prototypes
- Laboratory experiments
- Design an sizing of complete treatment chain
- Tests under real conditions of use
