Aquateam COWI is R&D partner in a Research Council of Norway project

Aquateam COWI is R&D partner in a project founded by the Research Council of Norway and other Industrial partners (Salsnes Filter AS) entitled, Sustainable treatment of wastewater by Salsnes Filter fine mesh sieves and biological processes

The primary objective of this project is to develop fine mesh sieve systems for primary and secondary solids separation at wastewater treatment plants, with the intent to save resources by reducing the costs and energy consumption for biological wastewater treatment and maximizing the energy recovery from the organic matter in the removed solids.

Secondary objectives:
a) document the optimum particle removal in front of biological processes, in order to optimize both the biological treatment performance and the recovery of resources from particles in the wastewater.
b) Develop a fine mesh sieve system for achieving the optimum particle removal under secondary objectivce (a) at the lowest possible use of resources.
c) develop a fine mesh sieve system for solids separation downstream of biofilm processes, providing good, economic and energy efficient solids removal in a small footprint
d) large scale verification of the fine mesh sieve systems for primary and secondary (biofilm) solids separation.
