Meet our partners

SAVING-E  is particularly grateful to the following corporations and foundations for their support towards helping to evaluate whether is possible or not the conversion of current urban WWTPs from being net-energy consumers into self-sufficient or even net-energy producers.

Events calendar

SAVING-E networking and professional development events. Stay tuned for our 2015-2019 event calendar. Don’t miss any event!

The main expected result is to demonstrate and to disseminate that the use of the SAVING-E technology will result in significant positive impacts in the current WWTPs, offering environmental, economic and social advantages, such as:

  • Increase of 50% of the biogas production
  • Reduction of 10% of the nitrogen discharge
  • 30% of energy saving in the nitrogen removal process
  • 40% of energy saving in the global treatment process
  • Reduction of 20% of greenhouse gas emissions
