The aim of the project is to develop and test a simulation tool for monitoring and control of reuse technologies using a digital twin for existing pilot-plant technological units for treated municipal wastewater reuse at WWTP Brno-Modřice. The innovation includes the implementation of advanced sensors, the creation of a digital twin of pilot-plant units, and the creation of variant self-learning algorithms for steady state and dynamic behavior simulation.By correlating the monitored variables, we will achieve create soft sensors for pollution monitoring and simulation of reuse efficiency, which will allow us to predict and minimize risks for reused water applications according to EU Regulation 2020/741. The output will be a digital twin module integrated into a comprehensive reuse technology solution
