05 Nov SAVING-E Project kicks-off
The project LIFE14 ENV/ES/000633 LIFE SAVING-E Two-Stage Autotrophic N-removal for mainstream sewage treatment held its kick-off meeting on 5th November 2015 at the UAB premises in Barcelona. Funded by the EU LIFE programme, SAVING-E project will explore the possibility of generating energy from the treatment of urban wastewater. The aim of this project, coordinated by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, is to radically re-design urban wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) so that they can produce energy with no loss or even with a gain in performance.
SAVING-E project will explore the possibility of generating energy from the treatment of urban wastewater.
