Decarbonisation and Digitalisation
Water for smart liveable Cities
Dear water professional,
Old, traditional wastewater treatment plant and climate neutral don't sound like two things that should exist in the same sentence. But for the Marselisborg Wastewater Treatment Plant, this is the reality. Being one of the most energy efficient treatment plants in Europe, the plant produces twice the amount of energy required to clean wastewater to very low outlet values; this is without external carbon. Thanks to Aarhus Vand/Danfoss strategies, this is possible and proves that wastewater treatment can be decarbonised.
Aarhus Vand, Danfoss and other Nordic companies, institutions, and NGOS will be in attendance at the upcoming edition of the IWA #WorldWaterCongress & Exhibition to give further insight into their latest work, and participants will be able to address and evaluate the progress of the water sector on the Sustainable Development Goals.
Will you be there? We look forward to seeing you.

Expanding water treatment globally is not only a key enabler for creating a better world for humankind. Water treatment can also contribute to fighting climate change and reduced CO2/GHG emission; the term ‘greenhouse gases’ (GHG) in this blog refers to all 3 components. Typically, the key components in water treatment emissions are methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and CO2. CO2 results from the energy consumed.
