Environmental Technologies in Austria

This report will be the start of a series highlighting how Austria does it's part to ensure environmental conservation in the various fields that matter.

Different sectors of environmental technology in Austria

Austria has a broadly diversified environmental technology industry. The level of quality of innovations 'Made in Austria' are internationally sought after. These include:
 State-of-the-art solutions offered by the recycling industry.
 Revolutionary ideas to soften drinking water.
 Ultra lightweight vehicle concepts featuring extremely low CO₂ emissions.
 New materials for the construction industry.

Austria takes this field extremely seriously. Furthermore,the  government of Austria also has already laid out the groundwork for the future to ensure better results by 2020.

Through the current report, I am introducing an innovative example of Waste Water management.

Waste Water Management

Sewerage and waste water treatment is important to maintain the natural balance  of our ecosystem and protection of our water resources.

Austria is leading in 'Cleantech' High degree of specialization in the fields of water management, air pollution control and recycling. A study carried out by ETH Zürich concludes that Austria has a high level of specialization in the field of Cleantech patents. Austrian industry boasts more environment related technology patent applications in the water and wastewater segments than the entire EU.

Wastewater treatment is one of the most important economic factors in Austria’s environmental technology business. One segment of the process is the sewage sludge treatment. 

A great example is a district in the town Straubing.

The entire area is supplied with energy from wastewater! This is done through two heat pumps that derive energy from wastewater in the sewage system and feed two networks with it which can supply at least 100 housing units with heating energy and warm water. The system also includes a sewage sludge purification plant with a combined heat and power plant.

The plant generates energy from the biogas it creates out of household wastewater, including sewage. Carbon is extracted from the wastewater and pumped into digesters kept at 38°C filled with bacteria. These produce biogas, mostly methane, that is then burned to make heat and electricity.

Clearly, Austria is doing its part to ensure the best and most environment friendly results in the water management field of environment conservation.

    Hi Aaditya

    Nice instruction about the transition to renewable energy in Austria.
    It seems that variety of innovative actions are being taken, and the issue of water management grabbed my attention. Food is the one of the most common way of humans interacting with their surrounding environment, and of those foods, water is the most important and frequent food source.

    I hope all those innovative tries end up in success and Austria become excellent role model to neighboring nations.

    Thank you for the great report.

    Keep up the good work.

    Hey Aaditya!
    It's Lisa:)

    Wow, I can see that Austria has some great technologies regarding the environment!
    I really like the example of Straubing. The entire city is indeed the realization of sustainable and renewable energy! I am very surprised!!
    I hope this example of Austria is more promoted that other countries can have it as a role model for their cities.

    Thanks for sharing the great exmaple:)
