Sustainable Water Treatment and Nutrient Reuse Options

Plovdiv Municipality (Plovdiv)

Plovdiv is the second largest city on population and the most important cultural center of Bulgaria and it is candidate for the Cultural capital of Europe 2019. There are six regional administrations on its territory representing the local executive authority including this regional authority. During the last years, the operation of the Municipal WWTP in Plovdiv has been under very difficult pressure on how to dispose or find use for the amount of sludge it has been accumulating.

There is a high generation of sludge, hard to dry and dispose due to different organizational and financial problems, and the pant need immediately a better form of reuse since it cannot store such high amounts.

Recently, the Municipality of Plovdiv is searching for reconstruction and modernization of the plant.In the city were carried out different international, including EU projects in areas of environment, cultural heritage, etc. Currently, proposals have been applied to the EC Europe Aid Program, related to the water cycle of the city and another related to the city’s traffic organization plan.
