Global and local water-related challenges are becoming increasingly severe due to climate change, population growth, industrialization and urbanization. Flooding is the most disastrous type of local challenge and causes significant problems in human livelihood. A particularly difficult situation occurs when the amount of water to be treated exceeds the capacity of the unit. Then untreated water needs to be led directly to the environment.

Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in Europe, in industrialized countries and increasingly in developing countries are under a high pressure regarding treatment efficiency, operational costs and environmental impact (e.g. CO2-footprint). The developed method combines state-of-the-art methods for simplified simulation studies and for using simulation to evaluate control concepts regarding functional, economic and environmental criteria.

The project “Contripol”, Orval Valley (France) to restore water quality (nitrates) 

The project “Contripol” (individual contribution to pollution) was set up to develop a methodology to evaluate at field level the contribution to nitrate pollution, to provide advice to farmers to on how to minimize this pollution, to transfer this methodology to agricultural extension organizations and to study the feasibility and desirability of agri-environmental contracts.
