First POWERSTEP regional workshop a success

The first of a series of POWERSTEP regional workshops for municipalities took place on 26 October 2017 in Döbeln, Germany. The event attracted around 30 participants, including representatives of municipalities, sewage treatment plant operators, wastewater associations, decision-makers and scientists to hear about and discuss the results of the POWERSTEP project, its technology approaches and funding possibilities.
