Wonderful Wetlands – Getting Low Cost, Low Carbon Energy from Constructed Wetlands – Wednesday 12th February 2014, 6pm

Kiran Tota-Maharaj from Abertay Universitydescribed how we can access low-cost renewable energy by combining heat pumps in wetlands. This can be achieved by OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA creating constructed wetlands, which are engineered systems which store water and filter out pollutants.

Kiran described a novel method for combining natural processes, engineered water management and new technologies to provide the multiple benefits of wastewater treatment, heating and cooling within urban developments.

This event took place in the relaxed atmosphere of Dundee Science Centre’s infusion cafe.
