The project in which we have taken part together with Aqualia has aimed to develop technologies that improve the efficiency of resources in WWTPs, minimising energy consumption and reusing nutrients and water. According to data published by the European Environment Agency, 90% of urban wastewater is collected and treated according to EU standards. However, wastewater treatment plants are one of the largest consumers of energy. In order...

Today we received in our facilities the consortium of the project led by Depuración de Aguas del Mediterráneo to evaluate the results obtained and to establish the next steps to follow. So-called "emerging contaminants" (ECs) are certain chemical substances whose presence in water can pose a risk to the environment and human health. These substances include pharmaceuticals, hormones present in oral contraceptives, or drugs of abuse...

Over the next three years, Aqualia, together with CETIM, will be the engine of the so-called Joint Research Unit AQUATIM, funded by the Galician Innovation Agency to foster cooperation between the research centres and enterprises that make up the business network based in Galicia. We spoke with Javier García Linares, director of the Aqualia’s Galician Delegation, about the strategic objectives of this project that seeks to recover resources such as nutrients or metals from the WWTP, as well as obtaining a fuel, green hydrogen.
