Event Navigation

The Water innovation Network are proud to bring you a unique opportunity to find out as much as you can about bioresources at Anglian Water on the 24th January and a chance to present your innovative solution to the decision makers of the 1st March.

Ofwat have thrown down the gauntlet to water and sewerage companies (WaSC’s) to get the best value from bioresources (also known as sludge), by introducing the Bioresource Markets (more details can be found here: hyperlinked to the below article).

Anglian Water’s approach to this challenge from Ofwat is to further explore the options of utilising the sludge within the catchment to help the company become Carbon Neutral by 2050. The existing treatment of bioreources is anaerobic digestions where biogas is produced from the sludge and this is used in engines to generate renewable electricity and a conversion of 1.1 MWhr/tonne dry solids is achieved, but this could be improved.

This event is your chance to collaborate with Anglian Water to improve the anaerobic digestion methods and processes to produce more energy, and to make further suggestions on how to get the best return from sludge.
