REF 2021 Impact Case Study: Providing environmental and commercial benefits through the implementation of novel wastewater treatment technology


Description of impact

UoP research has led to the development and implementation of water management technologies. New treatment technologies and site modelling implemented by a major UK water company improved wastewater treatment performance giving enhanced environmental protection and substantial cost savings. Increased performance of novel and enhanced package sewage treatment plants has reduced cost and stimulated commercial growth of SMEs. Research on blue-green water management systems has informed policy, improved environmental protection and provided commercial benefits to industrial collaborators. Lastly, novel soil washing technology has been developed and applied to achieve large scale hydrocarbon remediation at industrial sites.
