Along the lines of several positive business cases, we will be discussing innovative future proof decentralized solutions where Dutch Water Sector has been working on local challenges in the United Kingdom (UK) and Spain.
One business case will focus on improving surface water quality in the UK in a very effective and low-cost way combined with continues water quality monitoring and therefore very efficient. The other business cases will discuss decentralized waste water treatment in Spain which leads to huge increase in availability of irrigation water.
This session is aimed for anyone working on or interested in utilities, regional water boards, water technology industry, industry (water users).
The case in Spain concerns the decentralized solution that Bluecon has focused on purifying wastewater through an innovative process without the aid of bacteria so that it can be discharged directly into surface water, or used directly for irrigation. In Spain there is a structural shortage of water for irrigation and at the same time only 13 percent of the waste water is reused. The solution is particularly suitable for smaller industrial and communal applications (agglomerations of up to 10,000 inhabitants). This solution fills an important niche in the water scarce Spain’
Case LG Sonic:
Until now, water treatment has been focusing on in-plant treatment strategies, taking the quality of the intake water as a given and designing the treatment process based on this. As a result, the capacity and design of a water treatment plant needs to be upgraded as water resources deteriorate due to climate change and environmental degradation. In a holistic approach towards water treatment, the raw water reservoir or source is treated as part of the water treatment plant, which results in that water with a more stable water quality enters the treatment process in the plant. Through the installation of their MPC-Buoy, LG Sonic has been able to monitor water quality and treat the water against (harmful) algal blooms before the treatment process, resulting in raw water with lower levels of TSS, pH, BOD, Toxins and potential taste -and odour molecules. This webinar will focus on their application of the MPC-Buoy at South East Water in the United Kingdom.
