1.2.4 b Pre-concentration strategies
The project involves a series of tasks in the framework of water treatment and different valorization strategies. It includes a diagnosis of the circular economy opportunities in this sector, including energy production through anaerobic co-digestion of sludge and waste from Galician WWTPs, as well as the selective production of volatile fatty acids, which are valorized to produce bioplastics, as well as other strategies to maximize the use of organic matter from the sludge line.
On the other hand, another important aspect to analyze when it comes to evaluating the circularity of WWTPs is to carry out a diagnosis from the environmental, social and economic perspectives regarding their adequacy within the framework of the circular economy. That is why the INNOVAGUAS project includes an evaluation of eco-efficiency through the development of circularity indicators in the water cycle. Furthermore, a study of the perception and acceptance of the uses of recycled water and of the resources valorized from treatment waste flows is also assessed.
