SOLAR TREATMENT OF WATER UNIT

ON-GOING PROJECTS


AQUACYCLE
“The AQUACYCLE project “Towards Sustainable Treatment and Reuse of Wastewater in the Mediterranean Region” was launched in Thessaloniki on September 30, 2019, and brings together 7 partners and 4 associated partners from 8 countries around the Mediterranean: Greece (Lead Beneficiary), Lebanon, Malta, Spain, Tunisia, Algeria, France and Morocco.
AQUACYCLE is set to bring an eco-innovative wastewater treatment technology that will consist of anaerobic digestion, constructed wetlands and solar treatment for the cost-effective treatment of urban wastewater with minimal costs of operation and maximum environmental benefits. The novel technology will be demonstrated in 3 pilot sites in Lebanon, Spain and Tunisia.

The AQUACYCLE project is funded and supported by the European Union through the ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme. For more information, please visit http://www.enicbcmed.eu/ and http://www.enicbcmed.eu/projects/aquacycle/.

ALICE
Accelerate innovation in urban wastewater management for climate change.
This project has been funded by the EU programme Horizon 2020 (Marie Skłodowska-Curie /No 73456). The ALICE project brings together 13 partners from 6 EU countries with complementary expertise, including research centers, universities, companies and a regional authority.
The main objective of this project is the transfer of knowledge in as a tool to identify solutions and eliminate potential barriers to their implementation by fostering an effective interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral cooperation through mobility of project partner staff members.

ECOSAFEFARMING
Development and Testing Of a Novel Photocatalytic System for Efficient Cogeneration of Clean Water and Hydrogen for Ecosafe Agriculture. This project has been funded by the EU within the program Water-JPI ( No WaterJPI-JC-2016_08) , Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness through the ECOSAFEFARMING Project (International Joint Programming Actions, reference: PCIN-2017-005) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). ECOSAFEFARMING is a consortium of 5 partners (Istanbul University, Mir Arastirma Ve Gelistirme A.S., Brandenburgische Technische Universität Cottbus-Senftenberg, University of Ontario Institute of Technology, CIEMAT-Plataforma Solar de Almería) coordinated by Istanbul University.
The aim of this project is to develop and implement novel and energy efficient tertiary treatments technologies enabling reuse of treated wastewater in agricultural irrigation.
