Processes at cold temperature

Wastewater plant in snowy winter time

In Finland and in the Baltic Sea region wastewaters and natural waters are relatively cold during the major part of the year. This affects treatment processes. In addition, the capacity of the natural systems to degrade harmful compounds slows down at low temperatures which makes our nature vulnerable. Process solutions in focus are nitrogen removal, removal of organic micropollutants and solid separation.
