From conventional wastewater treatment plant towards resource factory

The goal of the project is to create a totally new wastewater treatment concept, which is profitable instead of creating costs. Especially, the target is to produce a novel method in order to enhance the municipal wastewater treatment by utilizing the energy and nutrients in the wastewater and removing harmful organic pollutants. The ultimate goal is to change the idea of a conventional wastewater treatment plant towards a low-carbon resource factory.
