New opportunities for energy and nutrient recycling in water supply
objective of the CIRCLE project is to enhance the recycling and re-use of
energy and/or nutrients in municipal and agricultural water service processes
and businesses in an economically and environmentally sensible way.
project considers both networked approaches and site or process-related
approaches to develop networked procedures that support technical, economical
and sustainable development in municipal and agricultural water supply. The objective
is to reduce the use of imported nutrients and energy in relation to the volume
The project aims to identify and develop the water treatment process control,
environmental issues, appropriate spatial data management and sophisticated
digital information on water solutions, instrument clusters and networked
operating models. The project also improves the abilities of Finnish players in
the sector to grow their export activities.
The project utilizes the potential for added value of water supply. The project
will accelerate and support the transition into blue energy and bio-economy,
enhance the implementation of resource wise solutions in water supply, improve
the cost efficiency of using nutrients and energy in water supply, improve the
waste water treatment ratio and provide comparable data for the process,
environmental effects and spatial data of water supply.
