    Title of presentation:
    Quantifying sustainability in WFFR’s – What are the potential and pitfalls, and who gets the credits from recovered resources?

    Abstract of presentation:
    Quantification of sustainability in the water sector is increasingly in focus. The focus is often a move towards being carbon neutral or negative. The talk will take offset in quantification of sustainability for Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRF), and discuss potentials and pitfalls in the move towards more sustainable practices focused on climate change.

      Digital technologies play a big role on the Danish water sector’s strive to become energy- and climate neutral by 2030. Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRFs), also referred to as Wastewater Treatment plants (WWTPs) are key to this development, in addition to securing public health and environmental protection in modern society. WRRFs may become energy- and resource factories of the future, when fully embracing the digital transformation with higher levels of automation, process control and sector integration. Global sustainability benefits are realistic when upscaling worldwide, which holds promise for increased export of cutting edge environmental technology.
