Modelling and assessment tools provide an important information basis for industrial decision making. Both activities address in their concept a variety of complexity scales, from single treatment technologies to integrated site scale, to provide assessment information in an appropriate depth. To realize this within E4Water both activities focus on one case study as master site for the full integrated site scale assessment to provide a full prove of applicability and elaborate for the other case studies modeling and assessment on treatment train level.
Implementing improved tools for
(I) process efficiency optimization, linking water processes with production processes via modelling,
(II) eco-efficiency assessment; especially related to water, energy, costs and environmental risks.
