Ideas on future stormwater management ?

Do you have opinions on these two questions?

“What is missing to create streamlined sustainable stormwater management?”

“How can utilities, municipalities, manufacturers and universities contribute to streamlining stormwater management in the future?”

If yes – you must  participate in our Specialist workshop on sustainable stormwater management in the future organised by the Technical University of Denmark, DTU.

How do we create a more uniform stormwater management, which takes data, tools, pollutants and legislation into account and also works for the industry, municipalities, utilities and universities?

The workshop will be kicked off by presentations from industry, universities and utilities, addressing some of the problems seen today with stormwater management.

The presentations will be followed by an open discussion and debate.

This workshop presents a possibility to contribute to the discussion and listen to opinions and ideas from others about the future of sustainable stormwater management.

Come join us

  • 16 Workshops with short introductions and plenty of time to discuss with other conference participants
  • 12 Poster sessions that provides a quick overview of some of the newest solutions within the water sector.

Among the large number of inputs there will  be opportunities to learn about experiences within handling micro plast and  micropollutants in Denmark, Sweden and Finland.

We have a session on phosphorus recovery and a workshop on the same topic giving room for both in-depth presentations and discussion of the issues. There will also be sessions on topics like hydraulic modelling of sewage systems and decision support tools as well as a workshop on weather forecasts and warning systems.

Within climate change adaptation we will focus on governance and cooperation models, but we will also present plenty of good solutions related to flooding, handling […]

Marselisborg ReWater – Danish solution with global perspectives

Lise Hughes, Team Leader at Aarhus Vand presents newest solutions and perspectives from a treatment Plant in Aarhus in an IWA – International Water Association blogpost with the title ”Shaping the future of resource recovery in Aarhus, Denmark”

Around the world, wastewater treatment plants work to develop solutions they transition to being engines of the circular economy, where energy, nutrients and other valuable resources can be recovered, but few other countries have come as far as Denmark in this field. The story from Aarhus Vand is an exciting example of this. At the plant in Marselisborg the new development gives an opportunity not only to reuse water, but also to accelerate innovation as a driver of increased efficiency and sustainability in the sector.

In Aarhus, the Marselisborg wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) has demonstrated that energy positive wastewater treatment is possible – reaching an energy efficiency rate of 153%. The benefits, and opportunities, ahead are so great that a planned new plant will be named a resource plant– Marselisborg ReWater.

Innovation and research are necessary elements in the circular economy
Aarhus Vand knows that constructing the world’s most efficient WWTP cannot be achieved using today’s technologies and solutions. This is why an important element in […]

Technical Tours – exiting experiences on your way home

Three days that are loaded with sessions and workshops end with an opportunity to experience implementation of some of the interesting solutions on your way home. We organise four visits. As a bonus there will be transport to nearby airports if you choose the tours to Aalborg or Billund.

1. Climate change tour to Aarhus: We will look at two different examples of sustainable climate solutions.One is in Lystrup, a suburb to Aarhus. It has experiences significant flooding in recent years. One is in the districcts Risvangen og Vorrevangen, where alle rainwater is managed on the surface through differenc sustainable urban drainage system-solutions. More information here.

2. Aalborg WWTP East: We will look at various energy projects implemented on the treatment plant with to improve energy efficiency.

3. Billund Bio Refinery: Technologies that combine advanced wastewater treatment with recovery of energy and nutrients are presented. More information here.

4. Marselisborg Treatment Plant: Innovative eksemples of energy efficiency at a plant that reached 168% energy efficiency while recovery of phosphorus takes place. Read more here.

With an almost overwhelming number of interesting and well-prepared proposals for presentations, workshops and sessions, the 12 hard-working programme committee members from five Nordic countries spent a concentrated day and a half at the DANVA office in Copenhagen, bringing all the pieces together for the complete conference program for NORDIWA 2017, which is now ready for download here:

Three overall themes
Wastewater treatment, drainage systems and climate adaptation were among the clear winners when it came to suggestions for presentations. These were divided into three main categories.

The conference’s three main themes are:
– New approaches to Wastewater treatment – Plants, Processes and Circular Economy.
– The need for an integrated approach to the sewage system, including management systems.
– Adapting to consequences of a changing climate.
In addition, there are several cross-cutting issues such as the Baltic Sea Region and the promotion of innovation in the Nordic region. Based on themes and suggestions, the complete programme is now available with titles of the individual sessions.
