HYLANTIC Follow-up Meeting
Second follow-up meeting of the European project HYLANTIC “Atlantic Network for Renewable Generation and Supply of Hydrogen to promote high energy efficiency” took place in the University of Brest (France) last 6th November 2018. During the meeting, the eleven project partners presented their advances and discussed about future actions for the next meeting that will be held in Belfast on March 2019.
EOLUTION presented in AEDyR International Congress
The Spanish Desalination and Reuse Association (AEDyR), celebrated last October its XII International Congress. The event aims to offer an international forum attended by experts in water desalination, treatment and reuse. Numerous companies, public institutions, universities and research centres attended the event, in which the latest innovations were presented, thus promoting the exchange of knowledge, techniques and ideas. In this framework, the EOLUTION project, funded within the framework of the SODERCAN programme boosting R&DE actions, was presented within the framework of the congress, raising an interesting discussion on alternatives with greater implementation feasibility. EOLUTION aims to be an important step in the efficient treatment of liquid effluents.
