Objective

Deliverables

  • Consortium Agreement and Project Management Handbook

    Incl. Intelectual Property Rules, Internal Project Management Guide, and the Quality Assurance Plan

  • Experience and performance data for the implementation of nitritation on a two-stage WWTP

    • Analysis of optimal performance factors and key figures for nitritation as sludge age, feeding rate, oxygen demand, or temperature, dependent on local circumstances • Experience report on qualitative and quantitative description of challenges, problems and appropriate solutions for a stable nitritation process

  • Proposition of POWERSTEP process schemes and WWTP reference models

    Description of WWTP reference models (representative of plant size, influent quality and treatment targets) and short list of proposed schemes, including a discussion on post-treatment options, technical options for sludge treatment and digestion, and inclusion of relevant combinations of technologies tested in Powerstep.

  • Successful realization of the full-scale membrane ammonia stripping and its start-up

    Documentation of the successful realization of the full-scale plant and its start-up. Process desciption (design and operation), process optimisation at start-up, first performance result.

  • Best practices for improved sludge digestion

    Review of exisiting innovative and successful practices to improve digestion and biogas yield with municipal sludge: a benchmark. Innovative practices will be discussed like high-rate digestion, two-stage digestion, thermophilic digestion, thermal hydrolysis, temperature phased digestion, etc. These process data will be used for the concept developments within the project (WA5: process schemes, energy audits, etc).

  • Communication kit for demosites

    Communication kit for all 6 demosites will be produced and released with consitent layout. They will include key information of the demo sites as well as objectives and process descriptions. Target: delegations and general public.

  • Innovative website

    The interactive website will target the general public. It should introduce the topic of energy positive WWTP in a friendly and playful way. User friendly, easy accessibility, informative and visually attractive.
