D2.1 Monitoring plan

Within SCREENCAP we have delivered the report ‘D2.1 Monitoring plan’. This report is confidential, but the summary is public. Please download the summary here (PDF).

D3.2 Implemented fine screens

As of the first large scale wastewater treatment plants (wwtp’s) in Europe, the wwtp Aarle-Rixtel is equipped with CellCap screens. The essence of the innovative concept in this project is the recovery of suspended solids from raw wastewater based on particle size. In comparison to common solids separation based on density, the positive impact on downstream processes is significant. Besides the difference is characteristics of the solids removed, the BOD:N ratio of filtrate can be controlled by changing the operational conditions of the screens.

D4.1 o-measurement

Fine screens will be taken into operation at one of the two identical parallel waste water treatment lines of the WWTP Aarle-Rixtel, while the other treatment line will still be operated as a conventional system. In this way, the performance of the "fine screen line" can directly be compared with the performance of the conventional line. In order to properly evaluate the impact of the fine screens to the waste water treatment process, it is important that the performance of both purification lines are identical before the fine screens are put into operation. The report of the "zero-measurement" gives an overview of several parameters and the performances of both purification lines, and support the conclusion that both purification lines are identical before the fine screens are taken into operation.

D4.2 Optimized finescreen operation

This report is a summary of the results and conclusions of the first 2.5 months of the Screencap research, from period October 13th to December 31th 2016. A few times some observations after this period are already mentioned.

The Screencap monitoring research will be executed for one year, and will continue until November 2017. So the results and conclusions in this report are preliminary and can change during the continuation of the monitoring research.

D4.3 Monitoring report

The treatment of sewage water with finescreens has been used in Norway for many years as physical sewage treatment. Screencap investigates a new application of finescreens, being a pre-treatment step of influent before it is fed to a biological waste water treatment plant (wwtp) to obtain more treatment capacity at the wwtp. Until now, the impact  on  the waste water treatment process is  not fully  known... The impact includes parameters such as aeration flow and sludge production, sludge settling and dewatering, effluent quality and energy consumption.

D4.4 Performance assessment (LCA)

In Work Package 4 the performance of the fine screen technology and the impact on the wastewater treatment process is assessed. As part of Work Package 4, this Performance Assessment assesses the environmental and economic performance of the project. The basis of this assessment are twofold. First of all, the data collected during the project and the Monitoring report. Secondly, two Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) studies that have been published in the Netherlands on the effect of fine screen technology, cellulose recovery and valorisation.

D6.1 Project Information Sheet

Screencap will demonstrate at full scale a promising finescreen technology to recover suspended solids from waste water on the basis of particle size. Finescreens have potentially significant advantages in comparison with existing solid separation technologies based on density differences.

These benefits include a significant reduction of chemicals and energy demands and the opportunity to recover energy and other resources from the waste water.

Screencap will adapt, install and operate at full scale the finescreen technology at one of the two identical treatment trains of a waste water treatment plant in the Netherlands.

Comparison with the other treatment train enables to establish the performance of the finescreen technology.

A dedicated impact assessment is part of the project. Using the reference, the project will develop actions for further uptake of the finescreen technology.

D6.7 New media output

During the project the project partners used Twitter to inform people about new developments. A list of tweets is provided in this report.

D6.8 Exhibitions/fairs

During the project the Screencap partner CirTec (BWA) attended several exhibitions/fairs and Screencap was visible during these exhibitions/fairs with e.g. roll banners. A list of the attended exhibitions is provided.

D6.9 Press releases

During the Screencap project some press releases have been issued. This report gives an overview of the Screencap press releases.

D6.12 Open day

This Screencap report shows the announcement, background and program of the open day that was organised on the 13th of October 2016. For this occasion a pop-up shop with information about Screencap and cellulose recovery and reuse was opened in the city centre of Helmond. Guided tours were organised at wastewater treatment plant Aarle Rixtel, including visits to the new building with the commissioned finescreen installation.

D6.13 Visitor programs

During the Screencap project several group visits to the finescreen installation took place. There have been visits from (local) schools, professional colleagues, governmental organizations and general public. This report contains a list of the visits of groups to the finescreen installation in 2017. The number of the people per visit was in general between 15-30 people.

D6.14 Presentations at seminars, fairs and workshops

During the Screencap project information has been disseminated. The project was presented during several seminars, workshops, conferences and fairs. All project partners have contributed to this. A list of the presentations and videos is provided.

D6.15 Articles

During the Screencap project information has been disseminated. During the project Screencap several articles have been published. All project partners have contributed to this. A list of the articles and videos is provided.
