Project Description

LIFE B2E4sustainable-WWTP
LIFE B2E4sustainable-WWTPLIFE16 ENV/GR/000298
New concept for energy self-sustainable wastewater treatment process and biosolids management.

LIFE B2E4sustainable-WWTP is a demonstration project that aims to improve the performance of overloaded extended aeration Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) and protect aquatic environment against pollution caused by WWTPs effluent, at significantly reduced energy requirements by means of a novel process for upfront solids removal (prior to aeration tank). Additionally, the project will demonstrate the valorization of the produced biosolids for electric energy production (through gasification), thus reducing further the net energy consumption of the WWTP, and consequently reducing the emission of greenhouse gases.
