5 Commercialisation example - PFBR Moneygall - PFBR no desludging after 2 years PFBR cost: 0.22 kWh/m 3 treated < cup of coffee per person per year!!) Shannonbridge

6 ITWat: Innovative sensors and operational/control measures for wastewater monitoring: Application of Imaging Technology The Project Development of smart ICT and image-based sensor technology to monitor and control the operational performance of wastewater treatment plants (patents under application). College of Engineering and Informatics/ Ryan Institute for the Environment, Marine & Energy

7 Development of KPI and benchmarking tools for WWTPs: College of Engineering and Informatics/ Ryan Institute for the Environment, Marine & Energy To quantify the resources consumed benchmarking through key performance indicators offers an effective and rapid solution. This research focuses 3 main areas of consumption: Energy, Chemical, Water

8 DairyWater: Technology development and College of Engineering and Informatics/ Ryan Institute for the Environment, Marine & Energy Technology development (IASBR, nano-material based treatment, pulsed UV systems) Resource efficiency Cost-benefit analysis

9 Ireland’s national Technology Centre for Biorefining & Bioenergy (TCBB) – co-hosted by NUI Galway in particular Prof Vincent O’Flaherty – Acting Head of School of Natural Sciences, NUI Galway & PI at TCBB Expertise in high-rate, low-temperature AD Wastewater Treatment Wastewater’s potential for biogas (bioCH4) production

10 TCBB industry member, NVP Energy - novel low-temperature anaerobic digestion wastewater technology originating from research and activity by Prof Vincent O’Flaherty and his research group at NUI, Galway.

11 The NVP Energy technology was licensed from NUI, Galway in June The process, which operates at temperatures <20◦C, treats effluent that originates from industrial and municipal sources, without the need for heat supply In addition, the technology can reduce organic sludge volume by up to 90% when compared to aerobic systems. The technology is very attractive as it has produced effluent which adheres to effluent release standards, e.g. Urban Wastewater Directive (UWWD) release standards, without the need for post-treatment.
