Tübingen waste water treatment plant: ozone to deal with micropollutants
The Tübingen wastewater treatment plant is the first plant in the Neckar catchment area to use ozonation as an economical, climate-friendly and efficient method of removing micropollutants. It is only the second plant of its kind in the whole of Baden-Württemberg, after the Eriskirch treatment plant on Lake Constance.
The treatment plant is designed for a capacity of 137,500 p.e. and treats the wastewater of the city of Tübingen and the Abwasserzweckverband Ammertal with a maximum combined wastewater inflow of 1,300 l/s. The fourth treatment stage and filtration are operated in partial flow.
