GreenTreat - Urban Wastewater Treatment Using Microalgae
In this seminar, we’ll be talking about the GreenTreat - a FCT project for the treatment of urban wastewater using microalgae. An experimental pilot installation with newly designed photobioreactors was placed in a wastewater treatment plant from Águas do Algarve and inoculated with microalgae. Nutrients and pharmaceuticals removal will be assessed as well as treated water re-use scenarios. Produced biomass will be upgraded for biofuels and biofertilizers. An economical assessment of the process and LCA are foreseen.
