NEO:Treatment plants transformed into biorefineries

Summary: The pilot waste water treatment plant developed by the Universitat Aut˛noma de Barcelona and AigŘes de Manresa S.A. Empresa Municipal generates added value products while simultaneously treating wastewater. The system recovers 50% of phosphorus, which can be used as a fertiliser, extracts materials used to produce bioplastics and reduces by 25% the costs of operating a wastewater treatment plant. The technology, which has been named ?Mainstream SCEPPHAR (Short-Cut Enhanced Phosphorus and PHA Recovery)?, is a pioneering system capable of transforming wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) into small biorefineries. This pilot plant was developed under the European SMART-Plant project (Grant agreement no. 690323), with a duration of 4 years and an investment of Ą9,768,806.09, is made up of 26 partners (companies and universities) from 10 EU countries and is an Innovation Action of the H2020-WATER-1b-2015 programme. During the project up to nine pilot plants will be tested out in five different treatment plants with the aim of improving the process, making them more energy efficient, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and recover resources.
