WP 6: Comparative assessment of cost effectiveness and of environmental performance

This work-package is dedicated to explore the cost‐effectiveness and environmental performance of the technologies addressed and developed in CleanWater for the Baltic Sea Region context.

Vision

To explore the cost‐effectiveness and environmental performance of the technologies addressed and developed in CleanWater for the Baltic Sea Region context.

Tasks

  • Provide concept for assessment and data collection to the research group
  • Collect data relevant for assessment of costs and environmental performance
  • Calculate costs based on operation and investments (Total expenditure). In particular cost efficiency will be assessed comparing operating the following: i) intelligent ozonation with sensor control and enhanced ozone introduction system, ii) single polishing MBBR, iii) MBBR post ozonation, iv) replacement of active sludge by MBBR, v) MBR, vi) forward osmosis, and vii) biofilters
  • Perform comparative environmental performance assessment of i) intelligent ozoantion with sensor control and enhanced ozone introduction system, ii) single polishing MBBR, iii) MBBR post ozonation, iv) replacement of active sludge by MBBR, v) MBR, vi) forward osmosis, and vii) biofilters.
  • Report writing

First results

A tool for estimation of annual costs have been developed within WP 6 in the Cleanwater project. The tool is intended for support in cost estimations of advanced treatment solutions.
