German water providers have been collaborating with private companies to build a water treatment plant on the banks of the Rhine, with the goal of creating the world’s biggest open-source water treatment facility.
The project is called ‘Swiss’ and the project is a joint effort by the German water company Duewater, the Swiss National Bank and the University of Basel.
The Swiss-based company plans to use its water treatment technology to treat up to 3 billion litres of water a day for the project.
The plant will be built on the Rhineland River, and will be managed by a private consortium.
The consortium has already secured funding from the Federal Ministry of Finance, which will fund the construction of the plant and its operation.
The construction will start in 2021 and the water treatment will be complete by 2024.
It will be the first-ever open-sourced water treatment system.
“We have been talking with companies from Switzerland and other countries to work on this project and it was important for us to work together,” said Matthias Fünfels, head of the water department at Duewater.
The water treatment process will be completely transparent, which is why the project has to be done in a transparent way.
“The system has to work without the use of chemicals and will not have any environmental impact,” Füdewes said.
Duewater says the project will be a significant contribution to the clean water campaign.
It is estimated that if all the water was treated, it would remove more than 300 million tonnes of CO2 a year.
The company hopes to have the plant operational by 2021.
“Our plan is to be able to process 3 billion liters of water in the first year, and then we plan to increase the amount of water being treated to about 10 billion litres per day by 2021,” Fudewes added.
The new plant is expected to be one of the largest and most complex water treatment projects ever.
It’s the first time that water treatment has been used in an open-system project in the world.
The entire system, which includes a collection plant, a treatment plant, water treatment pumps, and a plant for storing water, is planned to be 100 hectares in size.
“In a system like this, the main challenge is to produce clean water,” said Füfewes.
The system will be able turn out up to 30 million litres of clean water a month and produce the cleanest water in Europe, Füswels said.
“It will be possible to get a certain level of CO02 from the water and it will be very low,” he said.
The German government is expected have to approve the project, but Fücewes says the water quality will be extremely good.
The cost of the project was about 1.8 billion euros.
DuWater is already a major player in water supply in the region, supplying more than 2 billion litters of water to Basel and other cities.
The group has already announced that it plans to open a new water treatment station in the city of Basels in 2019, with a capacity of up to 40 million litters per day.
