Project description
The project "Combination of Advanced Oxidation Processes and Photobiotreatment for Sustainable Resource Recovery and Wastewater Reuse" emphasizes the high value of urban wastewater, considering it not as a waste but a valuable source. Urban wastewater possess high potential for water reuse and nutrients recovery. The main aim of the project is development of sustainable technologies for urban wastewater reuse with valuable resource recovery and production of fish feed (added-value products) suitable for aquaculture. Approach of this project is based on combination of microalgae and advanced oxidation process (AOPs) for urban wastewater treatment. It will lead to achievement of environmentally and economically sustainable zero-waste principle and nutrient recovery. Additional benefits will be achieved by generation of added-value products (fish feed for aquaculture).
