The roadmap exercise needs data and information about the status quo and (realistic) assumptions about selected future trends and pressures of each participating city. This information will be collected, analysed and assessed with an active participation of the TRUST pilot cities in workshops to define a catalogue of measures for [...]
Waste water treatment
Wastewater treatment is the process of taking wastewater and making it suitable for discharge back into the environment.
A first practical implementation of this approach is the development of an online self-assessment tool. The self-assessment tool makes use of the sustainability assessment framework developed for the whole project and develops it into a set of performance metrics to perform a quick and initial assessment of the sustainability of [...]
The tool guides users through a series of targeted questions, in which they are asked to assess particular practices within of their organisation. The purpose is to instigate thoughts about how their organisation operates and how practices might be improved. Once the tool questions are completed, an overall assessment scores [...]
The CENIRELTA project will demonstrate the technology through a pilot installation on a scale large enough to extrapolate to full scale. The pilot site will be WSHDs Dokhaven wastewater treatment plant. The project will: 1. Provide sound evidence of the effectiveness of CENIRELTA, through monitoring and economic analysis; 2. Combine [...]
The SHOWW project aims to lower barriers so as to allow innovative, viable and appropriate wastewater treatment solutions to become feasible investment choices. The main outcome of the project will be an increase in the number of cases in which appropriate solutions derived from previous LIFE projects are examined in [...]
Results of Neptune will be used to reduce environmental impact while at the same time reducing overall costs of the environmental protection. New analytical tools for micropollutants detection will enable better management of the whole effluent toxicity. By comparing existing as well as new technologies developed within Neptune, using LCA, [...]
The primary goal of the project LIFE Olèico + has been to raise the awareness among the olive industry operators of the environmental concern caused by the careless disposal of the olive waste, inducing them to adopt economic and environmental sustainable technologies. Although the project did not foreseen a direct [...]
The project successfully constructed a pilot artificial plant which proved capable of treating 60 m3 of waste water per year at an Italian olive oil mill. Waste effluent was fed from the production plant to a 200m2 phytoremediation pit area where it was either taken up by trees or evaporated [...]
Expected results: - Demonstration of the validity and feasibility of instrumentation to rapidly measure concentrations of priority pollutants in water; - Improved decision-making around pollution control, including an alert system for contamination from quasi-real time monitoring; - Guidelines and methodologies for the selection, implementation, operation and optimization of the methodology.
The aim of the WW-SIP project is to redefine the urban wastewater treatment plant (UWWTP) by transforming it into an integrated platform for sustainable and profitable sewage refinement. The project will create an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable wastewater refinement platform (WW-SIP) by integrating innovative technologies into the infrastructures and [...]
