Sustainable Water Sanitation, Wastes and Resources Recovery

In the Sustainable Water Sanitation, Wastes and Resources Recovery area we work in resource efficiency by ‘closing the loops’ through greater recycling and reuse, which is a cornerstone of sustainability policies where wastes and water are seen as resources. Our investigation includes advanced research on sustainable products for water treatment; optimisation of anaerobic digestion in wastewater treatment systems; removal of emergent compounds and particles at micro and nano scales; and testing of new methods to assess the risks induced by wastewater discharge to surface waters, in particular of priority and emergent substances.
