VIENNA, 24 November 2017- At the conclusion of the First Regional Conference on Sustainable Industrial Development, "Promoting Sustainable Energy Solutions and Clean Technologies in CIS Countries", participants took part in a study visit to industrial facilities around Vienna which readily utilize cutting-edge sustainable energy solutions and clean technologies.
Participants visited the main municipal waste water treatment facility, EBS Wien Hauptkläranlage, to learn more about waste water purification, mitigating environmental risks and on-site electricity production. Electricity generation methods and air pollution control measures, including air filtration, were presented in a visit to the energy power plant Kraftwerkspark Simmering.
