Title: Water reclamation by using a new concept of land application systems

Duration: 2016 - 2020



FILVER+ aims to develop an Amended Land Application System (ALAS) as a technology for secondary and tertiary treatment enhanced by the application of low cost and easy to get amendments. Target contaminants are nutrients, pathogens and contaminants of emerging concern.

General activities

Test different soil amendments to improve attenuation of target contaminants; identify reactive processes in the vadose zone; upscale experimental results to pilot scale evaluating the performance of the ALAS; economical and financial analysis.

Expected results

The enhanced treatment achieved by Filver+ will entail a sustainable solution for small and scattered populations transforming residues (wastewater and pruning wastes) into valuable resources.
