Project in brief
The project aims to address an urgent need by the water industry to reduce energy consumption by taking an integrated system view of resource consumption, considering both fresh water distribution and waste management. Simulation and modelling tools of the system will be developed and various system integration approaches will be considered.
A number of scenarios derived from real experience on existing networks would be used to identify gaps and opportunities for improvements in process design, integration and operation. The expected outputs are new methodologies for component selection, new operating strategies and novel approaches to process integration.
