The partners of the European project LIFE Multi-AD 4 AgroSMEs (LIFE17 ENV / ES / 000331), made up of AEMA (Water, Energy and Environment Servicios Integrales SLU), I&S (Institutions & Strategies), ITAINNOVA (Instituto Tecnológico de Aragón), SIS (Societatea de Inginerie Sisteme SA) and EGA (Energygreen Gas Almazán SL), have held a new working meeting to show the progress and results of this initiative. The meeting was attended by the Executive Agency for SMEs (European Commission) through a representative of NEEMO and project monitor, Mariona Salvatella.
During the meeting, which was held online, the results of the different actions carried out during the last nine months were presented. In addition, it has been used to make a virtual visit to the demonstration prototype, which is in the construction phase. During the visit, the progress in the assembly of the different elements that make up the demonstration unit was shown, as well as the current WWTP, based on an aerobic process, which will be used as a base scenario to evaluate the technical, economic and environmental feasibility of the LIFE Multi-AD technology solution.
At large ranges, the LIFE Multi-AD 4 AgroSMEs project aims to design and industrialize a high-performance multi-stage anaerobic reactor, adapted to treat wastewater generated in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) of the agri-food industry (F&D). This project, which has a budget of € 2,177,143.00, is 60% co-financed by the LIFE program of the European Commission. The LIFE program is the EU funding instrument for the environment and climate action created in 1992.
