Work Package 3
Constructed wetlands and other natural systems for improved wastewater treatment
Work Package 4
Risk assessment and water quality control
Work Package 5
Interfaces with the Environment & Society
Work Package 6
Decision support and system design
Work Package 7
Exploitation and dissemination
Work Package 8
The project is broadly structured in three major domains each including several work packages:
The technical demonstration of cNESs will be addressed by three work packages, one for each type of natural treatment systems, bank filtration (WP1), MAR/SAT (WP2), constructed wetlands (WP3). cNES feasibility for full-scale implementation will be judged principally on the ability of the system to achieve throughput and quality targets.
A dedicated work package (WP4) will address the framework of monitoring and modelling of water quality under varying conditions of use as well as user-friendly approaches to handle large data sets. The risks associated with failures to meet target specifications for a specific use will be evaluated as well.
Furthermore, potential obstacles to market introduction situated at the interface of technology and society will be investigated in WP5, in particular regulatory constraints, economic competitiveness and consumer acceptance.
Elements from WP4 and 5, and, indirectly, from WP1-3 will feed a suite of knowledge repository and decision support tools developed by WP6, allowing for the design of combined natural and engineered systems adapted to specific uses under specific local constraints. Such a tool is expected to greatly facilitate technological exploitation of combined natural and engineered systems addressed in WP7. Dissemination and communication to the broader stakeholder community will be handled by WP7. Project management including the project steering bodies will be implemented in WP8.
