The initiative, led by APRIA SYSTEMS, is based on the simultaneous combination of electro-oxidation (EO) and ozone (O3) technologies, together with a high efficiency power and decision support system. SITRA, the company of Grupo Gimeno specialized in the treatment and regeneration of industrial waters, will participate as partner in EOLUTION, contributing its know-how in the treatment of industrial wastewater.
Specifically, the project aims to reuse the water from the industrial washing of fruits and vegetables, hoping to reduce energy consumption by more than 30%. In addition, the process expects to save 63% on energy costs compared to conventional electro-oxidation processes for water treatment.
LEITAT technological Center and the Motion Control and Industrial Applications (MCIA) Center from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya are also taking part in the project, co-financed by the EU and the Society for the Regional Development of Cantabria (SODERCAN).
