Title: Advanced Nutrient Solutions With Electrochemical Recovery

Duration: 2017 - 2020

Research groups: Bioe


The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of electrocoagulation and bioelectrogenic microbial treatments in medium to small industry wastewater treatment plants for zero effluent discharge. These treatments can solve the environmental problem from that kind of industries, one of the main wastewater generators right now.

The project will be developed in one of the most important beer production plant of Europe (Alovera, property of MAHOU) at a demonstration scale treating real wastewater effluent in such a way that the feasibility of a solution reproducible to other areas will be shown, involving the main stakeholders (food and drink industries, local entities, and water public bodies) during the project implementation.


This Project received funding from the European Union Life Programme Under Grant Agreement Number LIFE15 ENV/ES/000591.
