Anaerobic MBR for WATER Resource Recovery in CIRCuLar Economy: WATER CIRCLE

The main aim of this Action Group is the development of an anaerobic membrane reactor for water treatment, promoting its uptake within water sector and disseminating its benefits in line with Circular Economy bases.

Anaerobic MBR for WATER Resource Recovery in CIRCuLar Economy: WATER CIRCLE boosts switching from the conventional Industrial/Urban Wastewater Treatment (I/UWWT) to the Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) concept, changing wastewater from waste into a source of energy, water, nutrients…

This involves work on assessing an alternative wastewater treatment based on AnMBR technology, not only focused on evaluating optimal scenarios of this technology but also considering downstream processes in order to maximise resource recovery including nutrient, dissolved methane and biogas from organic matter. As energy and nutrients are becoming increasingly valuable commodities such downstream considerations are likely to be critical in the uptake of this technology.

In this group several aspects are studied like sludge retention time, modelling, fouling, post treatment, etc. The objective of this Action Group, formed by multidisciplinary scientific and industrial members that work in the areas related to wastewater treatment and MBR technology, will be to motivate the development of the different activities proposed and achieve a successful integration of the results found into a new design for a sustainable and economic wastewater treatment.

The final aim will be to offer new market opportunities over conventional wastewater treatment technologies in line with the objectives of the EU Action Plan for the Circular Economy. Experience both in the public and private sector will improve the technological transfer of the activities developed, enhancing the professionals perspectives and employability in this sector.
