Project Description

Innovative wireless tool for reducing energy consumption and GHGs emission of water resource recovery facilities.

The main objective of the LESSWATT project is the development of an innovative tool for assessing and minimizing both direct and indirect contributions to CFP of aerated compartments in WRRFs.
This tool is composed of an instrument (LESSDRONE) for monitoring the oxygen transfer efficiency (OTE) in operating conditions and a user-friendly protocol for converting complex process information in actions aimed at minimizing WRRFs CFP and energy demand.
The reduction of energy costs and the minimization of GHGs emissions, complying with the quality effluent limits, will improve the environmental and economic sustainability of WRRFs while reducing associated costs for citizens and industries.
The applicability and the suitability of the innovative tool will represent a crucial issue of the project in order to ensure the transferability to other WRRFs also operating in different contexts and industrial sectors.
