As part of AQUASAVE project, funded by the European Union in the framework of the LIFE-ENVIRONMENT action, an assessment of the environmental sustainability of innovative techniques of water consumption reduction, rain water harvesting and grey water reuse in a residential building of Bologna is in progress. A preliminary TEAMTMLCA model of the drinking and wastewater treatment systems of the Bologna metropolitan area (existing scenario) has been completed. Environmental impact assessment results confirm that the dominant process for the most important impact categories, except eutrophication, is the electric energy production.

Abstract

As part of AQUASAVE project, funded by the European Union in the framework of the LIFE-ENVIRONMENT action, an assessment of the environmental sustainability of innovative techniques of water consumption reduction, rain water harvesting and grey water reuse in a residential building of Bologna is in progress. A preliminary TEAMTMLCA model of the drinking and wastewater treatment systems of the Bologna metropolitan area (existing scenario) has been completed. Environmental impact assessment results confirm that the dominant process for the most important impact categories, except eutrophication, is the electric energy production. Anyway when interpreting the results, great importance shall be given to local effects related to ground water extraction such as the subsidence phenomenon and pollutants intrusion in water-bearing stratum.
