SWIG workshop: Monitoring the production factory

July 6 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


The production factory concept was first thought about by the Dutch research institute, STOWA, in 2011 when the wastewater treatment plant of 2030 concept was first launched. Although 11 years ago the concepts that were raised included the “circular economy” and “efficiency” in the way that we run our wastewater assets which is an essential part of “the race to net zero.”

In this SWIG workshop we will look at the “factory approach” and how we must use the concepts of modern industry to improve the way that we operate whilst increasing efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of the water industry by looking at the way we can bring the factory approach to reality through monitoring.
