Together with the TROPOS institute we investigate the contribution of tram abrasions to fine particle air pollution. Currently this data is taken from goods and passenger trains, however this methodology produces very large contributions of tram abrasions. The output of this project will be used to inform engineers, consultants and policy makers about the potential impacts of tram abrasion on air quality.
Nosedo Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is Milan’s main wastewater treatment plant. It has a capacity of 1,250,000 PE with full nitrification and denitrification and is the largest plant in Europe having the final effluent fully reused for agricultural purposes.
The new Horizon 2020 project bring together industrial companies, such as Develco Products, research institutes, and household members with the aim of developing a holistic methodology for engaging households in sustainable energy practices. By introducing a smart metering system, it will be possible to better balance the supply and demand of electricity which will lead to a reduction of electricity consumption and CO2 emissions.
Mid-South Synergy in Montgomery, TX, operates a water service area with more than 5,000 metering points. The utility was looking for a solution that would give them a detailed overview of their distribution network with realtime information and smart alarms, which would help save resources.
A liquid-to-water heat pump utilizes and draws the energy from any giving liquid and then deliver is to a water born system, like radiators. The energy can come from a variety of sources including slurry, excess process water or trough hoses in the ground. It can be done based upon two needs: cooling or heating. […]
Rural Ugandan fishing villages along Lake Victoria did not have easy access to safe water. The lake is polluted from industrial waste and causes serious or deadly waterborne diseases when ingested. In 2015 the Iceland government funded a 4-year Water, Sanitation and Health (WASH) project to help the area.
The Inland Bioenergy anaerobic digestion facility in Chino, operated by ES Engineering, has capacity to process up to 200,000 gallons/day of liquid food waste. Four 15,000-gallon tanks receive macerated commercial food waste from various sources. Those contents feed into a 140,000-gallon equalization tank, which in turn feeds one of two 1.2 million gallon anaerobic digesters. […]
Biogas Energy have built an anaerobic digestion (AD) facility at North State Rendering in Oroville, California that is already paying dividends, with uninterrupted biogas generating electricity, fuelling trucks and running boilers. “For a rendering plant, biogas is a natural fit”, says Brian Gannon of Biogas Energy. “North State Rendering were looking for ways to cut […]
The Municipality of Aarhus has a vision of making the city an even more attractive place to live through its climate adaptation projects, and the local water utility, Aarhus Vand, works closely together with the municipality to fulfill this vision.
