A MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) has been entered into with Metropolitan Wastewater 
Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD), whereby knowledge sharing on optimization of 
processes and operations is gained. Through exchange of employees, the concept is to continuously 
seek development of new and more efficient ways towards the Utility of the Future.    Our latest major 
project that was put out for public tender was the expansion of Egå WWTP, where we used new 
innovative processes. This was accomplished in collaboration with consultants and developers together 
with whom we arrived at the right solutions and price structure.
