  • REMTAVARES PROJECT (Madrid Networking for Advanced Water Treatment)

    Consortium of 5 research groups from the Community of Madrid and a laboratory whose focus is on the treatment and management of urban and industrial wastwater for their reclamation or disposal. pincha aquí

  • LIFE-REMEMBRANE PROJECT (Recovery of reverse osmosis membranes at its end of life)

    Proposes a demonstration plant in which diverse mechanical and chemical treatments are developed in order to recover these membranes to reuse them in the same desalination process or in other applications which need a lower quality water specification but always in reverse osmosis technology. pincha aquí

  • PROJECT LIFE-PURIWAT (Purification waste water with oils, fats and hydrocarbons)

    The main objective of the Project is the design and development of a demonstrative pilot plant with a treatment capacity of 5.000 dm3 per hour which will be capable to remove from waste water between the 97% and 99% of hydrocarbons, oil anPrid fats, satisfying the requirements established in the current European directives (91/271/EC and 200/60/EG). This pilot plant is based on a filter which will be manufactured with a specific elastomeric material, and counts on a biodegradation system which will be made of microorganism which will allow degrading or, even, removing the contaminant charge of the wastes and so it could be then reused for secondary uses or eliminate. pincha aquí

  • LIFE-WATOP PROJECT (New tertiary waste water treatment for organic micro-pollutants PPCPs (Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products)

    The main goal of this proposal is to develop a demonstrative pilot plant for Pharmaceutical & Personal Care Products (PPCPs) removal from wastewater, by using a new technology based on nanoparticles, in order to improve the quality of water and to get a good management of the water resources. This technology relies on the use of nano-formulation resins (PAA / CD) whose effectiveness for removing mircro-pollutants has been previously tested; therefore the project is concerned with the implementation of a pilot plant highly efficient in removing PPCPs included within the tertiary treatment of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). pincha aquí

  • LIFE-REMPHOS PROJECT (Implementation of a new phosphate removal tertiary treatment in WWTP)

    The main goal of this proposal is the development of a technology for phosphate removal from wastewater using a byproduct from the magnesia production industry and the implementation of this technology into a WWTP in order to improve water quality. This methodology will be developed by the consortium with the aim of reducing phosphate concentration by chemical precipitation using by-products from MAGNA (making them profitable). LUREDERRA will coordinate research activities, and SMSA will be in charge of implementing the new demonstration plant on its facilities. pincha aquí

  • LIFE-RELEACH PROJECT (Decreasing the environmental impact of waste management: An innovative leachate treatment using recovered membranes)

    The main objective of the RELEACH project is to demonstrate and disseminate the technical and economical feasibility of decreasing the overall environmental impact of waste management by adopting new landfill leachate treatment strategies based on the use of different existing technologies, mainly membrane separation processes, with the final aim to reduce as much as possible the concentrate stream produced in landfill leachate management. pincha aquí


    LIFE-OFREA is a project supported and financed by the European Commisssion to reuse wastewater in coastal areas more efficiently. Led by ACCIONA Agua and ESAMUR, it uses advanced desalination technology in an effort to reduce by 20% the energy that would normally be required if conventional desalination techniques were used.

  • REMEB project (Recycled Membrane Bioreactor). REMEB is a H2020 project that started in 2015 with 3 years duration term. The main objectives of the REMEB project are the implementation and validation of a low cost recycled ceramic membrane bioreactor for water reuse in a Wastewater Treatment Plant. pincha aquí
  • INREMEM Project (Innovation and recycling of membranes for water treatment). INREMEM is a national project that is being developed by researchers from IMDEA water and Complutense University of Madrid. The main objective of this project is the indirect recycling of end-of-life Reverse Osmosis membranes. For this aim, the membranes recycled in the LIFE TRANSFOMEM project are going to be used. In the INREMEM project the recycled membranes are going to be adapted and applied to different technologies such as: biomembranes, membrane bioreactors, forward osmosis, electrodialysis and membrane distillation. The environmental impact of the different recycling techniques is going to be studied in terms of Life Cycle Assessment. pincha aquí
  • TecnioSpring+ Mem2.0 (Integration of recycled membranes in water processes)

    Mem2.0 project will demonstrate the viability of using “second hand membranes” for the treatment of drinking water and wastewater; concretely, recycled nanofiltration and ultrafiltration membranes from end-of-life reverse osmosis membranes. Additionally, the project will integrate its results to two existing decision support systems (MemEoL online tool and NOVEDAR_EDSS software). Mem2.0 is co-funded by ACCIÓ and by the European Union through Marie Sklodowska Curie actions pincha aquí
