The wastewater treatment plant of the future : what challenges?

The wastewater treatment plant of the future will have to exploit all the potential brought by wastewater: the reuse of treated water for agriculture and industrial processes, the production of stabilized sludge for agricultural improvement, the recovery of biogas as energy source.

In addition, the purification equipment used will have to consume less electrical energy, thanks to the optimization of biological processes in particular.

The National Research Institute for Science and Technology for the Environment and Agriculture (Irstea) has found that French wastewater treatment plants consume 50% more electrical energy than their equivalent abroad.
