DTU Studieprojekt - Eco-efficiency of pesticide-removal technologies in water treatment

Eco-efficiency of pesticide-removal technologies in water treatment

Udbyder
Vejleder
Sted
København og omegn
Background
This project is part of a collaboration between Niras, DTU, Krüger, Region Hovedstaden, HOFOR and Novafos to address the growing challenges to remove organic micropollutants from ground- and drinking water.

In the recent years an increasing number and concentration of pesticides and other organic micropollutants have been discovered in Danish ground-and drinking water. Drinking water in Denmark is mainly based on groundwater and the treatment has until now been based on aeration and sand-filtration, which is not designed to remove micropollutants. It has therefore become challenging for utilities to provide safe drinking water and fulfill the legal limit concentrations.

However, cleaning ground- and drinking water comes with a cost – both economically and environmentally. Treatment technologies that are able to remove those micropollutants are expensive in CAPEX and OPEX. Furthermore, the carbon emissions are bound to increase when pesticide-removal technologies are implemented.

In order to compare and decide on the optimal pesticide-removal technologies to be implemented in Denmark, it is essential to identify the economic as well as environmental costs of selected technologies.

Mission
In this hands-on project you will collect relevant data on selected water treatment technologies and carry out an eco-efficiency analysis, guided by a PhD student and the supervisor. An eco-efficiency analysis combines an economic analysis with an LCA. At the core of the project will be a comparison of CAPEX and OPEX with the carbon footprint of the technologies. The study will support important decisions among Danish water supplies having growing problems of providing clean drinking water with low environmental impact and high cost-efficiency.

Skills acquired
Life-cycle assessment, knowledge on water treatment and/or environmental processes

About you
Preferably you have a background in environmental engineering and have gained experience with water supply, environmental economics and life cycle assessment. As a person you are ambitious, structured, curious and enjoy solving real-life problems.

About us
You will be part of the Water Technology Section of the Department of Environmental Engineering. Associate Professor and Head of MSc studies Martin Rygaard will supervise you together with the Industrial PhD student Manuela Schliemann-Haug.

Martins research aims to answer questions on the technical, environmental and economic consequences of changes within the urban water system. He and his team use lifecycle assessment, eco-efficiency and multicriteria analysis to assess the performance of water systems. His second research expertise is in the area of water supply distribution systems and the use of hydraulic models and GIS to assist the monitoring and documentation of safe water quality.

Manuela is an industrial PhD from Niras and DTU Environment with project partners including HOFOR, Novafos, Krüger and Region Hovedstaden. The project aims to optimally implement pesticide-removal technologies for ground-and drinking water in Denmark. She is investigating technical aspects, water chemistry and microbiology as well as the eco-efficiency of selected technologies.
