What is the benefit DIGITAL WWTP?
According to the research conducted by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), India has 269 sewage treatment facilities (STPs), of which only 231 are active, implying that the existing treatment capacity is just 21% of the current sewage production. Untreated waste water is the primary source of pollution in rivers and lakes.The volume of wastewater produced by domestic, industrial, and commercial sources has increased as a result of population expansion, urbanization, improved living conditions, and economic development.
Digitalization has a lot of potential in water and wastewater treatment. New sewage treatment technologies, such as the membrane bioreactor (MBR), can treat wastewater to a level similar to that of river water. This treated sewage may also be used to recharge flood plains in riverine systems, ensuring that rivers have a constant flow.
Benefits of digitalization of wastewater treatment plants
Operational excell?ence is ensured by digitalizing wastewater treatment plants in the following ways:
a) Lesser machinery breakdown due to use of IOTS, smart sensors, and real-time monitoring
b) Lesser energy consumption on optimum energy usage
c) Optimized chemical consumption
d) Reduced water losses
e) Reduced contamination of water bodies
f) Improved customer satisfaction and transparent service level agreements
g) Digitalization technologies enable specialists to assess data obtained from smart sensors and take corrective and confident action to prevent equipment failure.
Ways to exploit possibilities of digitalization solutions to optimize operations of WWTPs
1. Modern WWTPs use Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems to automate their operations, which are normally controlled by predetermined set points established by the operators.
2. Set points are maintained using local control loops such as dissolved oxygen controls and return sludge rate controls. However, by integrating data with a simulator for WWTP process modelling, it is feasible to further boost efficiency by utilizing the various options that digital solutions may bring.
3. Simultaneous simulations, testing complicated control situations, and sophisticated experiments are all possible with the powerful engine.
4. The operator can be furnished with completely open and customizable real-time control (RTC) and monitoring dashboards using a modelling software platform for improved control and automated reporting of WWTP operations. As a result, the WWTP operator may optimize treatment procedures while also making adjustments as the system evolves.
Digitalization is the key to the wastewater sector's future success. The way organizations in this industry work will be transformed by fully integrated, transversal, and interoperable systems, as well as predictive capabilities. However, digital transformation is more than just an attempt to invest in technology; it also entails a culture shift in businesses, which must be recognized.
