IWAMA project consortium

IWAMA project started back in March 2016 – with ambitious goals and results we wanted to achieve to improve the state of the Baltic Sea. After three intensive years of joint implementation of activities in ten countries, testing and learning from each other, we are extremely happy and proud to share a wide collection of produced outputs with our colleagues in the region. Equipped with strong partnership enthusiastic to bring the change to their workplace and the region; with a steadily expanding pool of external stakeholders closely involved in cooperation we are ready to overcome water challenges across the borders.

Pilot investment: Reject-water treatment system in Tartu wastewater treatment plant

Tartu Waterworks Company is the second biggest municipal wastewater treatment plant in Estonia and one of the many WWTPs in the Baltic Sea Region where anaerobic digestion of sludge is applied. There, a full-scale deammonification technology was developed and installed with regard to demonstrate in-situ start-up of deammonification without external seed.

Audit concept for smart energy and sludge management

The audit tools and smart energy and sludge management were developed to measure the effectiveness of the process applied at wastewater treatment plants and outline the potential for improvements of these plants.

Download the tools and apply them to adjust energy consumption and sludge handling at your WWTP!

Energy self audit tool and Smart sludge management audit tool are available in English, Estonian, German, Finnish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Swedish and Russian.

Pilot investment: Energy-efficient sludge drying in Jurmala wastewater treatment plant

Within the framework of IWAMA project Jurmala WWTP is piloting a drying and incineration unit (hereafter, unit). The unit is designed to reduce the amount of surplus sludge from the wastewater treatment process using vapor of thermal decomposition of volatile products and non-condensable gases as fuel. It is integrated into the existing technological chain of WWTP.

This summer we have published two massive project works: reports on key figure data collection in energy and sludge from wastewater treatment plants in the Baltic Sea Region.
