A1 Characterization of emerging pollutants in wastewater treated with EDARs


Emerging contaminants (CEs) that, through urban wastewater and effluents from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), reach aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems cause negative effects on ecosystem services. LIFE CLEAN UP aims to improve water purification with an efficient and environmentally friendly technology to obtain purified water exempt from CEs.

Through project LIFE16 ENV / ES / 000169 called "Validation of adsorbent materials and advanced oxidation techniques to remove emerging pollutants in treated wastewater" that begins its activity in October of 2017 and will be developed until October of 2020. This project has a budget of 1,492,512 € of which the European Union has co-financed with € 895,506
