One of the biggest problems in this process is the formation of foam in the digesters, which leads to reduced biogas production and increased maintenance costs for the plant. A joint research project of Ara Pustertal AG, Atzwanger AG, Stuga KG and Inewa Consulting GmbH looked for causes and solutions. Now results are available.

The sewer is not a waste treatment plant

Whether for the baby's face, cleaning the bathroom, our buttocks or cleaning the cow's udder - there are cleaning cloths for everything.

The indispensable sewage treatment plants

Every day 32,153 cubic metres of wastewater are produced in Pustertal. We use clean water for showering, brushing our teeth, rinsing, washing laundry and every time we go to the toilet.

Today we have five sewage treatment plants in the valley that treat the dirty water and return it clean to the rivers.
