Within this sprint we will be looking at a range of novel innovations, looking to pilot the most effective. The list of options includes for example:

  • Decarbonising energy and transport emissions through journey avoidance, efficiency & alternatives to fossil fuels
  • Hydrogen production from bio-resources
  • Reducing transport emissions through collaborative working
  • New remote monitoring techniques and technologies in order to reduce visit frequencies
  • Low energy aeration technologies
  • Maximising energy generation from sewage sludge
  • Hydro electricity at sewage treatment works
  • Heat recovery at sewage treatment works
  • Alternative heat sources for sludge treatment processes
