Located in Milan, the Nosedo Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is one of the best examples of water reuse in Europe. It treats 350,000 cubic meters of wastewater daily, with 60-70% directed toward agriculture, significantly mitigating the region's water scarcity challenges. However, as drought conditions threatened Italy's water resources, Nosedo sought a solution to bolster its resilience and optimize its processes.
Our experts introduced Hubgrade Performance, our digital monitoring system, and seamlessly integrated into Nosedo's operations. By providing real-time data for energy and chemical consumption, hydraulic capacity, and biological enhancement, Hubgrade not only enabled Nosedo to achieve annual operational cost savings exceeding €1,500,000 but also strengthened its ability to handle high load variations and wet-weather events, all while achieving a remarkable 20% higher hydraulic capacity in biology.
With Hubgrade, the municipality embarked on a journey towards a more sustainable and resilient future, demonstrating that innovation is the key to combating water scarcity and environmental challenges.
