Efficiency and rational use of water resources

The context regards efficiency and the rational use of water resources, with specific reference to core technologies for the reduction of water demand in the civil, industrial and service sectors, waste water treatment and the recovery of materials and energy from water management processes;  

Technological objectives:

Efficient treatment of civil and industrial waste water

For example: New solutions for industrial waste water treatment - Alternative solutions for the use of chemical agents in the treatment of waste water, with the development of biological systems also associated with energy recovery - Solutions to reduce energy consumption in the water purification and treatment processes.

Efficient water usage in production processes

For example: Solutions to reduce costs of waste water, particularly in the industrial sector - Reduction of water consumption of industrial processes - Recovery and reuse of waste water and sludges for civil, agricultural and industrial uses
