Past research into water-related issues includes:

1. Wastewater surveys

  • Hydraulic balance of water sources, consumers and wastewater flows

  • Source assessment and pollution load balance

  • Evaluation of Best Available Techniques (BAT)

  • Optimisation and evaluation of CAPEX and OPEX

2. Rain water assessment

  • Surface inventory and modelling of storm water flows

  • Characterisation of water composition

  • Simulation of pumping stations, buffer tanks and treatment equipment

  • Scenario-analysis of buffering, reuse, infiltration and delayed discharge of non-polluted run-off

  • Scenario-analysis and design of polluted run-off water treatment

3. Screening of water treatment installations

  • Evaluation of dimensioning and operation

  • Evaluation of Best Available Techniques (BAT)

  • Optimization and evaluation of CAPEX and OPEX

  • Minimization of chemical consumption and sludge production

  • Negotiation of acceptable discharge limits

4. Alternative water sources and zero-discharge requirements

  • Identification of consumers and required water quality

  • Research into appropriate treatment and impact water management

  • Cost-benefit analysis

5. Masterplan water and wastewater

  • Discharge requirements compliance

  • Fulfilment of zero-discharge projects

  • Reduction of water consumption and wastewater production

  • Cost savings for water use and wastewater treatment and discharge

Trevi has recognized experts in the water treatment field, which means that it can even supervise studies imposed by the special conditions of an environmental permit or lawsuits.
