CREA is an operational intelligence platform that allows management and optimization of integral wastewater treatment processes using real-time data monitoring of key process parameters. CREA provides intelligent decision support, multiple control strategies and automatic reporting on key data analytics and achieves quality consent limits with reduced operational costs and enhanced reliability. The software incorporates classical mathematical models, fuzzy logic, pattern recognition, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to analyze real-time data and provide control strategies and decision support dashboards. Key wastewater treatment applications, such as aerobic and anaerobic processes, nutrient removal, anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox), sludge digestion and dewatering, can be optimized from the platform. — Te-Tech Process Solutions Ltd, Southampton, U.K.
