In October 2015th our team will start working on a new Project POMACEA (Affordable technology for mitigation of membrane (bio)fouling through oPtimizatiOn of pre- treatMent And ClEAnIng methods).
Project is approved under INNO INDIGO Joint Call 2014 – Clean Water and Health and addressed to the challenge of «Development and applications of membrane technology in water purification/sanitation». The main objective of the project is to find an optimal technology and operation mode for effective membrane performance and longevity. The resulting approach will be tested in a case study carried out in India.
Research teams from India (CSIR-CSMCRI; CSIR-IICT) and EU-Member States, namely Portugal (UPORTO, European coordinator), Germany (TUBS) and Latvia (RTU) will be involved in the project implementation.
