A pilot treatment plant developed by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Aigües de Manresa S.A. Empresa Municipal generates added value products while simultaneously treating wastewater. The technology used improves the treatment process and at the same time extracts the phosphorus and materials used to manufacture bioplastics. This pioneering plant was inaugurated today at the Manresa- Sant Joan (near Barcelona) wastewater treatment plant and forms part of the European SMART-Plant project. 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.

Samuela Guida, PhD candidate at Cranfield University is explaining how this process works.

SMART-Plant is a member of the ICT4WATER cluster
