Development of automation technology and process control for waste-water treatment plants that allow to minimize the environmental and economical impact of system while making visible to the end users the role of the plant. In particular, the scientific / technological objectives of this project are: i) development of a system for the management and monitoring of the treatment plant, based on artificial intelligence techniques, assessing the environmental sustainability of treatment plants ( through Life Cycle Assessment techniques that operate in real time); ii) development and implementation of IT infrastructures for data acquisition, transmission, storage and presentation of data; iii) deployment and evaluation of the system on waste water treatment plants.
