Intelligent management system for reuse of treated wastewater for agricultural use (AUGEIAS)



AUGEIAS research project develops an integrated intelligent ecosystem, consisting of an innovative, easy-to-install and fully-parameterized LPWAN with IoT end-devices that enable real-time monitoring of the wastewater treatment infrastructure and agricultural sites, analyze and correlate collected data with reliable open data (e.g. meteorological data), exploit advanced machine learning techniques and predictive analytics in order to support informed decision making, optimizing the usage of treated wastewater in a safe and efficient manner for agricultural purposes. AUGEIAS is expected to reduce the usage of conventional irrigation water as well as of fertilizers, promoting sustainable use of treated wastewater, while properly incentivizing farmers through the incorporation of an intelligent dynamic pricing scheme for its use. Quality and quantity of crops is guaranteed by the proposed AUGEIAS intelligent water management engine that defines the appropriate mixing ratio of conventional water with treated wastewater, taking into account crop needs, soil status and legislation limitation imposed. AUGEIAS has several positive impacts in multiple aspects, including environmental, financial and social.


This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union and Greek national funds through the Operational Program Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, under the call RESEARCH – CREATE – INNOVATE

Duration: July 2020 – January 2023
