This Monday we held a new LIFE GREEN SEWER Workshop to exchange ideas on monitoring and control systems in water treatment and research into new sensors for determining its quality.
The workshop was organised by the R&D&I Division of Magtel, a technology-based partner company of the project with more than 30 years of experience in the application of innovative solutions to the design, construction and maintenance of initiatives in the energy, telecommunications, digital transformation and infrastructure sectors.
Infrastructure and Environment Area Manager of the R&D&I Division of Magtel, Mª Isabel Ibáñez García, opened the workshop explaining the technologies that are being developed in LIFE GREEN SEWER that allow the secondary treatment of wastewater, the recovery of energy and resources present in the water, while reducing the presence of pollutants, costs and energy consumption.
In addition, the Workshop counted with the participation of the research coordinator of microLAN, Maider Erize, who explained the LIFE PHOENIX project. In this project, different innovative solutions for the regeneration of urban wastewater for agricultural use have been investigated for all types of WWTPs. For this purpose, a demonstration plant with more than 12 technologies was designed and validated in several locations.
After, the researcher of Industry and Mobility and the Smart Industry business area of Tecnalia, Roberto Trueba, spoke about the experiences with Artificial Intelligence in the optimisation of water treatment processes.
Likewise, R&D Manager of Photonics and Vision Area at Leitat, Monica Della, showed the expertise of the Technological Centre in the use and development of photonic sensors for water quality control.
To conclude the event, Mª Paz Aguilar, Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Cordoba, presented the new remote IoT sensor platform for monitoring food and environmental safety in aquaculture that they are working on.
