Workshop  – „Optimization of Egypt’s wastewater treatment plants”

The online workshop on June 21, 2021, will highlight various aspects of optimizing Egyptian wastewater treatment plants. You will get first-hand information on smart solutions on how to optimize Wastewater Treatment plants and turn them into Zero-Energy Plants and a potential Resource for Water, Energy and Nutrients. You will get the chance to network with Egyptian and German representatives in the water and wastewater sector and foster the exchange between both countries.

We cordially invite you to our Workshop and Networking Event on June 21, 2021:

Speakers:  Holding Company for Water and Wastewater, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Egypt, Technical University Berlin, p2m berlin GmbH, KLEINE Solutions GmbH, Binder Group, Mitsubishi Electric, KSB, ATB Water GmbH, Rudolf Messner Umwelttechnik AG, Aerzener Maschinenfabrik GmbH, German Water Partnership

Goals:  Demonstration of potentials for Zero-Energy Wastewater Treatment Plants and foster the exchange between Egyptian and German representatives in the water and wastewater sector

Topics:  Smart Solutions for Biological Treatment, Sludge Management, Plant Control and Operation, Energy Efficiency and Best Practice

Format:  Online Presentations and virtual Networking Meeting with B2B contacts. The event will be in English.

Please register for the event. The event is open to anyone interested in the topic. You will find the agenda in the download area above.

The Project ATLANTIS

The growth of Egypt’s population and the increasing water consumption lead to a higher energy demand for water supply and disposal. The energy costs are a central cost factor in wastewater treatment. Due to decreasing subsidies, they are expected to rise in the near future. Inefficient technologies and processes at existing wastewater treatment plants also cause rising CO2 emissions. Furthermore, the availability of ground and surface water will decrease. The same is expected for nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus for agricultural fertilisers. If the current situation does not change, the availability of water, energy and nutrients will deteriorate. The project ATLANTIS aims at creating the groundwork for sustainable and energy-efficient optimisation of Egypt´s wastewater treatment plants.

The project focuses on the preparation of a feasibility study for the conversion of two existing plants to a resource for water, energy and nutrients or a specific plant design and for a new construction. For this purpose, the concepts are examined in detail and practiceoriented, necessary measures are derived in cooperation with local stakeholders and staff is trained for sustainable operation in workshops. The feasibility study is to be carried out for selected wastewater treatment plants in Egypt, which are selected as examples for comparable plants on the basis of a catalogue of requirements. The study is based on the results from the completed project ENOSIS, which was funded by the German export initiative for environmental technologies.

The project ATLANTIS is a jointproject by p2mberlin GmbH, Kleine Solutions GmbH, Technische Universität Berlin (TUB), the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater (HCWW), the GIZ Water and Wastewater Management Programme and German Water Partnership e.V. and is funded by the German export initiative for environmental technologies.
