Resumen:
Un centro de investigación belga ha desarrollado un modelo de apoyo a la decisión para gestionar la calidad del entorno acuático. Este modelo, provisto de una interfaz gráfica de usuario, tiene en cuenta las cargas antropogénicas y sus impactos en la calidad fisicoquímica del sistema fluvial. Se trata de una herramienta potente para la gestión holística del agua que ayuda a establecer relaciones entre la presión y el impacto. El modelo se utiliza por responsables de la gestión del agua. El equipo de investigación busca socios académicos, industriales o públicos con el fin de establecer acuerdos de investigación, licencia o colaboración.

Tittle:
Integrated software for water quality assessment
Summary:
A research center of a Walloon University has developed a decision support model for quality management of the aquatic environment. Provided with Graphical User Interface, the model takes into account the anthropogenic loads and their impacts on the physicochemical quality of the modelled river system. The model is in use by water management stakeholders. The team is looking for academic, industrial or public partnerships for research, license or collaboration agreements in the field of water.
Description:
The numerical model, developed in Wallonia (Belgium), is a powerful tool for a holistic water management by assisting in the establishment of pressure / impact relationships. The model involves a wide range of features in its integrated software suite. It handles a wide variety of input data at the watershed scale up to the entire international hydrographic district. Natural system processes and anthropogenic impact pressures (urban, industrial, WWTP-WasteWater Treatment Plants-, livestock discharges, and processes, ...) are taken into account in order to assess physicochemical quality of the water bodies. That allows decision makers in the water sector to provide measures (management plan) for water quality enhancement (before their implementation). In that way, the model is dedicated to implement the WFD (Water Framework Directive 2000/60/CE).
The tool is made available to the market via license agreement. Types of partners sought are water management decision makers and environmental consciousness companies regarding their industrial discharges. Players involved in environmental scientific research are also sought by the development team, in order to establish research cooperation agreements related to water quality assessment.
Advantages and Innovations:
The Belgian research team offers a deterministic and physically based modelling tool that provides a better understanding of the hydro system processes. The innovation is generated through an acknowledged experience (30 years) in the development of technologically advanced software suite helping in integrated water quality forecasting and management. It is a powerful deterministic and non-stationary quality processing engine taking into account various parameters as the anthropogenic impact, corbicula, segmentation and suspended matter, transport of micropollutants, ... The modelling processes that reckon physical, chemical and biological factors requires big amount of input data assimilated by dedicated sophisticated numerical algorithms and tools. It also provides an overall water quality assessment in a single software suite. Through a better understanding of the described basin, it also allows to reinforce the monitoring Network as well as the waste water treatment strategies.
