International collaboration to make used water treatment energy neutral

Increasing energy production while decreasing energy demand: this vision will soon become reality for used water treatment plants retrofitted with a novel concept developed by Singapore researchers in cooperation with international collaborators from Denmark and France. The new, so-called Energy+-concept is currently being demonstrated at a pilot-scale plant in Kranji Water Reclamation Plant. On July 4, the international partners of the project will sign a Research Collaboration Agreement formalising the alliance. 


 "With new and stricter international requirements on energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, the water sector has put energy efficiency high on the agenda", explains Martin Andersen, Head of the Environmental Technology Department at DHI Singapore and Principal Investigator for the project. "There is an enormous market in minimising energy consumption of existing plants and making them, at least, energy neutral."



The signing ceremony will take place in the heart of the SIWW's Water Expo at Booth no. 32 (SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT) on Wednesday 4th July at 12.30 pm. Join us to learn more about our fruitful collaboration and Energy+.
