Advanced course on energy positive wastewater treatment!

The POWERSTEP project, in collaboration with the Vienna University of Technology, is organising a Summer School this July in Vienna, Austria.

The POWERSTEP Summer School aims at distributing expertise from innovative and cutting-edge research in the field of energy-positive wastewater treatment. In the EU-funded project POWERSTEP, a consortium of 15 partners is working together to create a real paradigm shift in the wastewater sector. Brought together by the POWERSTEP Summer School, a variety of these experts, coming from research institutions and industry, will illustrate the four distinct interconnected strategies investigated in POWERSTEP to turn wastewater treatment plants into net energy producers.

These demonstrated strategies include:
#01 Carbon extraction for energy recovery into biogas
#02 Nitrogen removal in the main stream
#03 Biogas valorisation and efficient energy management
#04 Nitrogen management in side stream

Join the POWERSTEP Summer School in Vienna from 6 to 7 July 2017 to upgrade your knowledge on a topic of high societal and environmental relevance and seize the opportunity to exchange your views with leading experts of the wastewater sector.
