A Light Boost for Water Treatment
Exploring fluorescence spectroscopy’s ability to monitor quality – and reduce operating costs in wastewater treatment works
Victoria Barton |
Thanks to substantial investment, the EU has seen considerable improvements in the collection and treatment of wastewater. The downside? It has also increased pressure on current wastewater treatment technologies. Enter FLUORO-BOOST (Fluorescence-Based Optimization Of Sewage Treatment) – a project that aims to “provide the water industry with a robust yet straightforward technique, based on novel developments in the field of fluorescence spectroscopy, to optimize wastewater treatment works performance, to reduce energy consumption and to monitor final effluent quality in real time”. Elfrida Carstea, a researcher at the University of Birmingham, UK, has been working on the project, which comes to a close in October 2015 (1).
