ALICE Project – Accelerate Innovation in Urban Wastewater Management for Climate Change – took place at the end of January. Funded under the H2020 RISE programme, the overall aim of the project is to accelerate innovation in urban wastewater management to address the future challenges arising from climate change. The project objectives are to: i) improve the urban resilience of wastewater infrastructures; ii) investigate the wastewater and energy nexus in wastewater treatment plants to reduce carbon footprint and improve resource efficiency; iii) enhance the reuse of reclaimed wastewater and resource recovery; iv) investigate the social behaviour and acceptability issues in the development of innovative management systems for urban wastewater. The consortium brings together 7 leading academic institutions, 2 water utilities and 3 SMEs with complementary expertise. The project is led by Dr Caterina Brandoni and Prof. Neil Hewitt from UU.
