Abstract:

This project aims to bring a solution to water and energy issues by achieving an optimized and energy free disinfection of urban wastewater using novel solar assisted-treatment technologies for production of safe food and clean energy with reduced water footprint.

Project structure:  

The project lasts 36 months (3 years) and is organised into seven key work packages (WPs);
WP1: Project Management and Coordination,
WP2: Lab-Scale Development, Optimization and Implementation of the Reactor;
WP3: Prototype Design and Production of Novel Reactor,
WP4: Case Studies for Agricultural Reuse;
WP5: Monitoring and Evaluation of Wastewater Reuse, Impact on Plant and Soil;
WP6: Risk Assessments of Solar Reuse System and
WP7: Dissemination of findings.

WP2, 3-19 months, IU, UOIT, CIEMAT-PSA, BUT,
WP3, 12-22 months, IU, UOIT, CIEMAT-PSA,
WP4, 20-33 months, IU, CIEMAT-PSA, MIR,
WP5, 20-33 months, IU, CIEMAT-PSA, MIR,
WP6, 25-36 months, IU, UOIT, BUT, CIEMAT-PSA, MIR,
WP7, 30-36 months, IU, UOIT, BUT, CIEMAT-PSA, MIR.

Outcome/deliverables

This project aims to develop novel solar (UV) PCED reactor systems for the disinfection and desalination of urban wastewater for agricultural reuse.
