Integrated technology for improved energy balance and reduced greenhouse gas emissions at municipal wastewater treatment plants "BARITECH"

Aquateam COWI is engaged in several projects in Poland. The “BARITECH” project is one of them.

The expected positive ecological effect of the project contributes to environmental protection through improvement of water and air quality as well as improvement of WWTP energy balance. It will be achieved by reducing nutrients loads, energy consumption and GHG emissions, together with onsite enhancing renewable energy sources utilization and economic efficiency of WWTPs.

The aim of the project is a practical application of sustainable management by energy recovery and reduction of GHG emissions. It is expected that implementation of the novel integrated technology will lead to a major reduction in consumption of natural and non-renewable resources. The results obtained in the experimental part of the project will be the basis for the energy balance and estimation of the GHG emissions.

Guidelines concerning design and operation of the integrated treatment system will be helpful for designers and contractors. The intended outcomes will be institutional cooperation and exchange of information among the scientists and stakeholders as well as the knowledge transfer both between Polish and Norwegian researchers and researchers and authorities/heads of WWTPs.
