The workshop took place on Thursday, December 9, at the Centro Sociocultural Xinzo de Ponteareas, in Pontevedra.
LIFE REFOREST aims to mitigate erosion and loss of soil in areas affected by forest fires through an innovative system based on mycothecnosols.
After the workshop, the group visited one of the three experimental plots where the effectiveness of this innovative system is tested, based on a combination of stabilized organic waste inoculated with fungi, and contained in tubular sleeves of biodegradable material.
All interested people who could not attend the LIFE PHOENIX project workshop on November 4, which was taught in a hybrid format, can watch the event deferred through our YouTube channel and, consult the presentations of each speaker.
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.
The Emulcell project “Cold bituminous mixes additivated with nanocellulose” (biopaving alternative to conventional asphalt) led by the Ourense company Misturas, S.A. and in which the Roads, Geotechnics and Materials Group of the CITEEC of the UDC and the Advanced Materials Area of CETIM Technology Centre participated, has won in the Company & Research category of the 1st Innovative Materials Competition of Galicia. The event, promoted and organised by the Galician Innovation Agency (GAIN), coincided with World Materials Day.
On Thursday, November 4th, CETIM will organise the 1stLIFE PHOENIX Workshop, led by Aqualia in A Coruña, Spain. This face-to-face event will focus on Wastewater Regeneration: New legislation, Innovative Technologies & Success Cases.
During the 4 years of duration, the FIBERCLEAN project has investigated new textile products, more sustainable and with a low (or no) emission of microfibers, of higher quality and resistance.
The consortium covers the entire value chain of the product, from the generation of the fabric, its shaping and finishing to the washing process and wastewater treatment.
CETIM, we collaborated with MAGTEL, in the design, implementation and...
Carlos Martínez is, since mid-2018, responsible for promoting, directing and coordinating the work carried out within the Spanish Construction Technology Platform (PTEC), as well as its representative with the authorities and forums related to R&D&i, among other functions. From this period, he highlights the solid growth of the institution and “the muscle that the Spanish sector has” as well as the fact that the biannual conference of the ECPT will be held next December in our country.
