DIGITALIFE project has established collaboration with the LIFE-PHOTOSCALING "Sustainability of photocatalytic technologies on urban pavements: From laboratory tests to in field compliance criteria" project, IFE13ENV/ES/001221, during a workshop that took take place in Castellón, Spain on 4th June 2015.
The project’s general objective is to introduce an efficient and financially viable technology for the removal of pharmaceuticals (PH) from the effluent of wastewater treatment plants. The technology is based on the advanced oxidation processes (AOP) associated with electrochemical degradation of PH, using high capacity electrodes, like boron doped diamond electrode. The project will demonstrate technology on a sufficiently large scale to fully evaluate its effectiveness and economic viability. The aim is to demonstrate a solution that it is applicable to all wastewater containing PH and other persistent substances, which also include wastewater from old people’s homes and hospitals in the EU. At the same time it is a flexible technology, suitable for different applications, with low maintenance costs and high efficiency.
