Workpackage 3. Process optimization, evaluation and mathematical modeling at pilot- and full-scale level

The overall purpose of this WP is to integrate the knowledge achieved from WP1 and WP2 at a large scale level and to evaluate the environmental sustainability of the process. The results will help identify the main impacts in the life cycle of the different technologies and support development of more sustainable solutions.

The WP will provide science-based procedures for optimal operation of biological filters. This will include investigation and evaluations of the use and implementation of biological filters for drinking water treatment with focus on their sustainability and climate/greenhouse effect.
