Title: Microbial electrochemical strategies oriented to a sustainable and decentralized urban wastewater reuse

Duration: 2016 - 2018

Research groups: Bioe


MET4HOME aims to take advantage of the metabolism of these microorganisms to change the paradigm of decentralized water purification through the design, construction and validation of a compact prototype designed to purify and disinfect the water generated by an isolated dwelling (up to 8 eq/inhab) Allowing its reuse for irrigation, sanitary tanks, etc. Taking advantage of the use of electrochemical instrumentation, we will install an electrodisinfection system for the elimination of pathogens.
