LIFE-ANADRY
LIFE-ANADRY

Project title:

Dry anaerobic digestion as an alternative management & treatment solution for sewage sludge.

LIFE Code:

LIFE14 ENV/ES/000524

Short description:

The main objective of LIFE-ANADRY is to assess Dry Anaerobic Digestion (AD) technology under thermophilic (55°C) and mesophilic (35°C) conditions as a more effective treatment method for the sewage sludge produced in WWTPs.

 

The abovementioned process offers a vast improvement in terms of effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and sustainability over other methods for sludge treatment in small to medium-size WWTPs. The process will offer:

 

  • Enhancement of biogas production with a concomitant reduction in energy use
  • Reduction of the operating costs in the WWTPs
  • Sludge stabilisation and hygienisation
  • Reduction of carbon emissions due to the minimisation of the use of inorganic fertilisers (recycling sludge as fertiliser)
  • Comprehensive data that supports the attractiveness of the technique for full-scale application

  • The implementation of a new low-cost wireless monitoring technology, Plug&Lean system.
  • Detailed modeling of the sub-sectors´ processes, that will serve to propose improvement actions and demonstrate its effectiveness before being implemented (easing the decision making and minimizing risks).
  • Specific water management implementation on continuous improvement process in the three demonstrators companies.

Project title:

Adding sustainability to the fruit and vegetable processing industry through solar-powered algal wastewater treatment.

LIFE Code:

LIFE16 ENV/ES/000180

Short description:

The LIFE ALGAECAN project proposes a sustainable treatment model of fruit and vegetable processing effluents that combines cost-effective heterotrophic microalgae cultivation with spray drying of the collected microalgae to obtain a product of commercial interest as raw material for the production of biofertilisers and animal feed. This system is placed in two containers for easy transportation and the energy used in the process is 100% from renewable energy (solar and biomass).

LIFE LEMNA
LIFE LEMNA

Project title:

Lemna cultivation technology to improve nutrient management in pig production systems
pig production systems.

LIFE Code:

LIFE15 ENV/ES/000382

Short description:

The main objective of LIFE LEMNA Project is to demostrate the technical feasibility and sustainability of a system for nutrient recovery from the anaerobic digested swine manure based on the production of duckweed.

Duckweed, also called water lentil or lemna,

is a fast-growing aquatic plant with a great capacity for nitrogen and phosphorus absorption. The result of this treatment is a protein-rich vegetable biomass used as raw material for the production of bio-fertilisers/bio-stimulants and as a substitute for other vegetable proteins in pig feed.

Synergy with life multi-ad:

The technology proposed by LIFE LEMNA could be applied as a sustainable system for the recovery of nutrients from anaerobic digestate in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the agri-food sector.

LIFE PureAgroH2O

Project title:

Pilot operation of innovative Photo-catalytic Nanofiltration technology for pollutant removal and water re-use of Agro-industrial effluents.

LIFE Code:

LIFE17 ENV/GR/000387

Short description:

The  key objectives of the LIFE17 ENV/GR/000387 LIFE PureAgroH2O project is to develop and demonstrate, at industrial scale, a novel purification system for the sustainable management of the end-of-the-pipe wastewater effluents generated in fruit & vegetable industry, the prevention of losses of various inorganic and organic contaminants to the environment and the recycle/reuse of the purified water. To achieve the objectives, a close-to- market, patented water purification system with the ability to effectively recycle 15 m3/day of agro-wastewater will be developed, demonstrated and commercialized in Greece. In addition, a second PNFR will be tested in Spain. The PNFR technology/reactor, integrates synergistically effective micropollutant abatement technologies such as photocatalysis (P) and nanofiltration (NF), in one smartly designed membrane reactor (R) module-PNFR that will retrofit a Fruit & Vegetable Processing Industry for mainly  pesticides removal.

LIFE STO3RE
LIFE STO3RE

Project title:

Synergic TPAD and O3 process in WWTPs for Resource Efficient waste management.

LIFE Code:

LIFE15 ENV/ES/000379

Short description:

The main objective of the STO3RE Project is to implement an innovative and cost-efficient technology, which are capable to conversion of manure and sludge from waste water treatment plants (WWTPs) into a high environmental quality biofertiliser.

 

The technology is called CavO3+DAG-TPAD (dual acid-gas temperature phased anaerobic digestion configuration coupled with ozone oxidation and hydrothermal cavitation). STO3RE tests this technology in a newly-developed demonstration plant that will centralise the treatment of secondary sludge from small WWTPs and cattle manure from surrounding farms. The facility will be located in Totana (Murcia, Spain) and be able to deal with sewage sludge from five surrounding WWTPs and several farms, covering an area of about 2,700 square kilometres. The total amount of sewage sludge treated in the demonstration plant is expected to reach 5-10 cubic metres of mixed substrate per day.

Project title:

Innovative Circular Businesses on Energy, Water, Fertilizer & Construction Industries towards a Greener Regional Economy.

LIFE Code:

LIFE14 ENV/ES/000688

Short description:

The main objective of LIFE iCirBus-4Industries project is to demonstrate the use of fly ash from forest biomass power plants as an adsorbent agent for heavy metals and other organic materials in sewage sludge. This will make the sludge suitable for the production of low-impact fertiliser. In a second stage, the project demonstrates the viability of a further use in recyclable construction materials of the used biomass that contains heavy metals and organic pollutants from sewage sludge.

 

The project characterizes the sewage sludge and the forest biomass fly ash. Then, the two-phase sludge treatment to reduce the presence of heavy metals and other contaminants will be validated at laboratory scale. The project scales up the process in a prototype sewage treatment plant with a capacity of 100 kg/hour of clean sludge. Overall, the project expects to produce:

 

  • 500 kg of low impact fertiliser; and
  • 17 000 kg of recyclable construction materials.

LIFE AMIA
LIFE AMIA

Project title:

Innovative combination of WWT Technologies for water reuse: anaerobic-aerobic, microalgae and AOP processes.

LIFE Code:

LIFE18/ENV/ES/000170

Short description:

An innovative demonstration European project that aims to reuse

wastewater for agricultural practices and aquifer recharge.

 

This project will protect the aquatic environment against the pollution associated with pathogens and micropollutants that are not removed in conventional wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) and will implement a technology with low energetic demands.

 

LIFE AMIA will develop an innovative and sustainable WWTP concept combining compact anaerobic-aerobic treatment, a microalgae bioreactor and advanced adsorption-oxidation process (AOP). The novel WWTP layout will allow nutrient recovery through microalgae cultivation and will reduce the net energy consumption, mitigating the greenhouse gas emissions.

Synergy with life multi-ad

Both projects seek innovation through the integration of anaerobic technologies for wastewater treatment, allowing production of renewable energy sources such as biogas and thereby contributing to a better conservation of natural resources and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
