Innovative wireless tool for reducing energy consumption and GHGs emission of water resource recovery facilities Project n. LIFE16 ENV/IT/000486
Duration: October 2017 – March 2021
WITH THE FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION OF THE LIFE PROGRAMME OF THE EUROPEAN UNION

The objectives of the Lesswatt project

The main objective of the Lesswatt project is the development of an innovative tool for assessing and minimizing both direct and indirect contributions to Carbon FootPrint (CFP) of aerated compartments in Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRF).

Innovative technology

The innovative technology is composed of an instrument (LESSDRONE) for monitoring the oxygen transfer efficiency (OTE) in operating conditions and a user-friendly protocol for converting complex process information in actions aimed at minimizing WRRFs CFP and energy demand.

Energy and GHGs reduction

The reduction of energy costs and the minimization of GreenHouses Gases (GHGs) emissions, complying with the quality effluent limits, will improve the environmental and economic sustainability of WRRFs while reducing associated costs for citizens and industries.

Transferability
