GENESYS project awarded, under LIFE programme

We are pleased to announce that the GENESYS project has been awarded in the framework of the LIFE Environment 2023 call launched by the European Commission.

The main objective of GENESYS is to demonstrate an MBR system followed by an advanced oxidation step consisting of UV-LED/H2O2, as a decentralized solution for the treatment of hospital effluents to reduce the load of organic micropollutants, antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARBs). In addition, LIFE GENESYS will develop a digital tool to help the hospital predict the concentration of drugs (antibiotics) discharged into wastewater and the related impact on the development of antibiotic resistance.

GENESYS will be executed by a consortium led by Cetaqua and formed by Labaqua, Companyia D’aigues De Sabadell, Corporacio Sanitaria Parc Tauli De Sabadell, Fundacio Institut D’investigació I Innovació Parc Tauli and Apria Systems.

The project will have a total duration of 42 months and has an approved budget of over 2,174,000 €.
