A learning plant for the future
How the new plant will look like when build in 2028 we don’t yet know. What we do know is that our ambition on making it the world’s most efficient WWTP cannot be achieved by today’s technologies and solutions. Therefore, the ambition is not to build a plant that stands unchanged, but a plant that will constantly help us expand our knowledge and therefore can be continually improved.
Technology and requirements are constantly changing. Therefore, our job is not to build a finished plant, but to build a “learning” plant that will be able to meet the existing demands while still being adaptable and making us wiser. Thus, Aarhus ReWater will be a place for developing and testing new or optimised treatment processes.
While a lot of the technologies acquired to build a WWTP is already known to us – and in use on our current plants – other technologies are yet to be developed. This is why we in our innovation strategy for Aarhus ReWater has formulated 15 innovation challenges, that is to be addressed – and solved – in the forthcoming years.
We cannot solve all the challenges ourselves. Therefore, we invite companies, knowledge institutions, and citizens to develop the future Aarhus ReWater with us.
