UMI Volta, CETIM + Ferroglobe

The Joint Research Unit VOLTA starts up, which will research technologically advanced, energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable electrochemical solutions based on silicon.

The VOLTA UMI is formed by the CETIM Technological Centre, with extensive experience in the development of advanced materials and the electrochemical study of anodic materials, and the company Ferroglobe Innovation, specialized in the production of silicon metal.

With a total duration of 39 months, the project has a budget of more than 2 million euros.

El pasado 20 de octubre tuvo lugar en el CIS Tecnoloxía e Deseño de A Cabana (Ferrol) la jornada de presentación de los resultados de LIFE Drain Rain, proyecto que ha logrado la captación y mejora de la calidad de las aguas de escorrentía permitiendo además su reutilización para regadío, riego urbano y todo tipo de limpiezas y baldeo.

The results of pilots in Ferrol and Calasparra verify the elimination of pollutants, increasing the availability of a basic and now “circular” resource to reduce water stresses associated with droughts.

In the 1,744 water analysis developed, the removal of heavy metals, fossil fuel residues, pesticides and contamination by E. coli bacteria was verified.

The conclusions of this project funded by the LIFE program of the European Union were presented during the final event inaugurated by the director of the Port Authority of Ferrol-San Cibrao, Jesús Casás López.
