The main objective of the LESSWATT project is the development of an innovative tool to evaluate and minimize the direct and indirect contributions of the carbon footprint produced by the oxidation tanks of purification plants. This tool consists of a prototype (LESSDRONE) for monitoring the oxygen transfer efficiency under operating conditions and a protocol that uses the complex process information collected to translate it into actions aimed at minimizing the carbon footprint of the plants and the their energy consumption. The reduction of energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions, in compliance with the quality limits of the effluents, will improve the environmental and economic sustainability of the purification plants, opening margins for the reduction of costs for both domestic and industrial users.
