Construction of the Budapest Central WWTP, the largest wastewater treatment plant in Hungary, was completed in 2010. The system was designed by a consortium of Veolia Water and Suez and is operating at the limit of its capacity.

A 5-year development program was drafted by Biopolus to improve treatment efficiency and to lower the energy consumption of the system. As a next step, pilot scale implementation of certain technologies, selected by use of the model, will be realized.
