Abstract (from springer.com)
This paper summarizes some of the work carried out within the Horizon 2020 project MIDES (MIcrobial DESalination for low energy drinking water) (The MIDES project (http://midesh2020.eu/) has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº 685793 .), which is developing the world’s largest demonstration of a low-energy system to produce safe drinking water. The work in focus concerns the support for operational decisions on desalination plants, specifically applied to a microbial-powered approach for water treatment and desalination, starting from the stages of process modelling, process simulation, optimization and lab-validation, through the stages of plant monitoring and automated control. The work is based on the application of the environment IPSEpro for the stage of process modelling and simulation; and on the system DataBridge for automated control, which employs techniques of Machine Learning.
