In PURE project, partner waste water treatment plants have implemented investments and operational fine-tuning in Belarus (Brest), Estonia (Kohtla-Järve), Latvia (Riga and Jurmala) and Poland (Szczecin and Gdansk). The exemplary forerunners have provided benchmarking of advanced sewage and sludge treatment practices (Lübeck from Germany) and data management (Mariehamn from Finland). PURE aim is an annual reduction of 300-500 tons of eutrophying phosphorus load to the Baltic Sea.
