Pilot investment on the Kaunas wastewater treatment plant is one of the largest in the IWAMA project. Installations on the plant have been ongoing since summer 2017, and will continue next year. We introduce you to the concept of the energy optimized control system constructed on Kaunas WWTP to support the smart energy management and reduction of nutrients.
The IWAMA Water Forum took place on 23–24 October 2017 in Växjö, Sweden, and attracted almost 80 participants from cities, research institutions, water utilities and environmental centers.
