LIFE SAFE T WATER

LIFE SAFE T WATER

New eco-innovative drinking water treatment based on 1-step chemical technology using a multifunctional natural polymer.

Objective of the project:

The main objective of LIFE SAFE_T_WATER is to validate an innovative and environmentally-friendly technology for drinking water production in two Drinking Water Treatment Plants (DWTP) located in Spain (treating a portion of the overall 1.13 hm3/d of water that supplies drinking water to 5.5 million inhabitants). The project beneficiaries will demonstrate new technology that eliminates all the corrosive and dangerous chemical products in the DWTP process, including: i) corrosive inorganic salts (coagulation), ii) carcinogenic polyacrylamide-based polymers(flocculation), and iii) toxic inorganic neutralising agents (pH adjustment). The chemical products of three steps in the treatment – coagulation, flocculation and pH adjustment – will be replaced by a single multifunctional enhanced organic polymer based on natural extracts.
