LONDON, Jan. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the water and sewage market, the introduction of artificial intelligence systems in wastewater and sewage treatment is an emerging trend. In wastewater, AI can be used to detect CSO (Commercial Solutions Opening) failure, blockages, pump station control and optimization, in-line pH neutralization control, treatment process control for additives, aeration energy and nitrogen removal optimization, control of activated sludge plants, and investment and operational planning.
For instance, in 2021, a smart sewer system based on artificial intelligence has been launched in South Korea. The South Korean Ministry of Environment has chosen 33 locations for the ‘Smart Sewerage Project’ system to be installed. These projects will receive a total investment of 332.4 billion won ($295.2 million). The system will use real-time monitoring, as well as remote control and management of the complete sewage treatment process. Smart sewage treatment plants, smart sewage pipelines (reaction to urban flooding, sewage odor management), and sewage asset management are all part of the smart sewerage project.

The deployment of advanced technologies in the sewage treatment facilities market to treat micro pollutants has proven to be a valuable investment and led to a substantial growth of the market. Micro-pollutants are contaminants originating from pharmaceutical residues, household chemicals, personal care products and pesticides. Use of technologies such as moving bed biofilm reactors (MBBR), ozone-based advanced oxidation, adsorption and powdered activated carbon (PAC) for removing micro-pollutants from wastewater are amongst the key water and sewage industry trends. There has been a growing focus on removing micro-pollutants from wastewater streams in European countries such as Germany and Switzerland. In Germany, advanced technologies such as GE’s membrane bioreactor and powdered activated carbon technology are proving to be a cost-effective way of removing micro-pollutants from wastewater. For instance, some of the major companies using advanced technologies to treat micro-pollutants include Suez Group, Arvia, and Novartis.
