Jose B. Carbajo, head of R&D&I at BONDALTI WATER and coordinator of LIFE Multi-AD, participated in the 6th IWA International Congress on ecotechnologies for wastewater treatment, which was recently held in Girona.
The event was a forum for companies in the water sector, universities and technology centres to present the latest developments in the treatment, reuse and recovery of wastewater resources.
Through 170 papers and 220 presentations, more than 500 experts showed innovative, sustainable and intelligent solutions developed through research and innovation, such as the Multi-AD technology.
The Multi-AD solution, installed at Bodegas AGE, has demonstrated its capacity to reduce pollution in wastewater by more than 90%, reducing the electricity consumption associated with wastewater treatment by 186,000 kWh/year and the cost of sludge management by nearly 80%.
These facts make it possible to achieve a reduction in the operational costs of the water treatment system of more than a third and a reduction in the carbon footprint associated with wastewater treatment of more than 50%.
The Multi-AD solution, based on a high-performance multi-stage reactor, therefore allows companies in the food and beverage sector to improve their sustainability, both in economic and environmental terms
