EDAR de El Toyo (Almería), piloto de LIFE PHOENIX.

CETIM takes part, since last month, in a new Project funded under the LIFE programme of the EU. LIFE PHOENIX, led by AQUALIA FCC, is a European project that will address the problematic related to the reuse of waste water for irrigation, in an EU and national context in which water stress is an ever-growing concern. The project deal as well with the increasing challenge posed by the Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) and the microplastics in water.

Galician Material Library, Materioteca de Galicia, promoted by the Galician Innovation Agency, is the first digital database of innovative materials created by Galician companies and knowledge centres.

 

Polymers included by CETIM Technological Centre are obtained or reinforced with lignin from the valorization of paper pulp manufacturing waste streams.

CETIM Technological Centre (Foundation Centro Tecnológico de Investigación Multisectorial) has been the beneficiary of a grant to hire personnel within the framework of the 2020 call for the PRINCIPIA Program of the Galician Innovation Agency. Funding, aimed at companies and research organizations in Galicia, is intended to promote the hiring of personnel for a minimum period of one year. These personnel carry out R&D activities...
