INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER

The CREA® platform optimizes wastewater treatment and guarantees efficient plant performance at a minimum cost

Increasing operating costs, environmental pressure and lack of flexibility of the WWTPs generates the need to introduce intelligent control strategies to achieve facility goals.

CREA® is an operational intelligence platform that supports real-time control and decision making to reduce operational costs, enhancing reliability and increasing treatment capacity to achieving quality consent limits.

Based on real-time monitoring and advanced data management, using cutting edge data analysis and artificial intelligence algorithms, CREA® implements the most suitable operation strategy.

With over 140 installations worldwide, CREA® is a modular and flexible platform that is compatible with WWTPs of any size, setup, or aeration technology.

Water line:

N-Removal

Provides the most appropriate oxygen dynamic set point and N/DN strategy to optimize nitrogen removal performance with minimum energy cost.of nutrient levels is delivered at the lowest energy prices.

C-Removal

Provides the most appropriate oxygen dynamic set point to optimize organic matter removal with minimum energy cost,

Air production & distribution

Based on real-time oxygen demand, provides a strategy that guarantees oxygen levels applying dynamic pressure control, ensuring the maximum aeration system efficiency at a suitable MOV scenario.

Internal recirculation

Adjusts internal recirculation pumping according to nitrate levels, treated flow and retention in the anoxic chambers.

External recirculation

Optimizes sludge recirculation according to plant’s treatment flow and sludge settlement conditions.

Energy management

Based on theoretical measurements, records information and feeds the other controls with the most appropriate energy consumption practice according to the energy tariff plan (cost kWh).

Advanced energy management

Tracking energy measurements, provides information to the other controls and determines specific process/equipment ratios that enables problem detection, breakdowns and deviations.

Chemical phosphorus removal

Adjusts coagulant dosage to the evolution of the orthophosphate concentration or total phosphate in the treatment- plant influent/effluent.

External input of organic carbon

Ensures N-removal efficiency with optimal external carbon source dosing in WWTPs that shows limited denitrification capacity due to shortage of organic matter availability in influent wastewater (low COD/N ratio).

External nitrogen input

Adjusts dosage of an external source of nitrogen in WWTPs with an excessive COD/N ratio, which hinders cell synthesis due to lack of nutrients.

Homogenization tanks

In order to widen the scope of the nitrogen removal control system, the homogenization tank operates as a time-of-use tariff, storing water when energy costs are more expensive and feeding it to the biological treatment system when the energy tariff is cheaper.

Sludge Retention Time

Based on nitrification performance and water temperature, the system adjusts the sludge waste flow (or gives recommendations) to operate the process at the minimum sludge age required for achieving the desired effluent quality levels.

Others

Design and implementation of controls to meet the specific needs of each process.

Sludge line:

Anaerobic reactor

Based on real-time monitoring of the main operating parameters (mass load, VFA/ALK ratio, biogas production, etc.), water treatment capacity is optimized and the reduction of organic matter and biogas production are maximized. Energy usage is minimized in the subsequent aerobic treatment. This control significantly increases process robustness and reliability.

Sludge thickening

Optimizes polymer dose in real time, stabilizing the thickening process, increasing solids capture while reducing chemical dosing costs.

Sludge dewatering

Optimizes polymer dose in real time, increase solids capture while saving money on sludge disposal and polymer costs.

Cogeneration

Based on biogas production, storage and kWh cost, defines the cogeneration engine operating strategy to maximize power generation and/or adapt it to plant consumption patterns.
