The LIFE PHOENIX consortium, led by Aqualia and with the participation of CETIM, is made up of 8 partners from Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands. Based on low energy consumption technologies, the aim of the project is to obtain reclaimed water from WWTPs of any size and to achieve qualities that allow reuse with full guarantees. Several demonstration plants integrated in sea containers will tour WWTPs in the Iberian Peninsula to test the viability of the selected technologies.

Wood is, in essence, a circular raw material with an unbeatable degree of sustainability, far above that of other materials. This is an added value with which leading companies in the forestry sector such as FINSA work on a daily basis, promoting it through innovation to obtain new materials from waste; cutting-edge R&D projects in which CETIM collaborates. “Some of our factories can use up to 80% recycled material as raw material” says Javier Portela López, director of R&D and Quality at FINSA.

The commissioning of new equipment represents an important advance in the specialization of our knowledge and expansion of our capabilities.

We set up an electrochemistry laboratory, specialized in materials for Li-ion batteries, advanced materials for energy storage, and electrochemical technologies for metal recovery.

Within the Bioprocesses laboratory, we expanded our capabilities by equipping ourselves with bioreactors ranging from laboratory scale to pre-industrial scale.
