AQUALIA will present BioSol Water Recycling LIFE project in IWAlgae 2019


Next 1st and 2nd July 2019, the IWAlgae conference will be held in Valladolid, Spain. This event represents a joint conference, bringing together the 2nd IWA Conference on Algal Technologies for Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recovery and the 12th IWA Specialist Group Conference in Wastewater Pond Technology. These two international conferences will allow scientists, algaeneers and practitioners to exchange the latest knowledge on the application of photosynthetic microorganisms for wastewater treatment and resource recovery, covering traditional opened ponds systems and the use of photobioreactors.

AQUALIA, which is Platinum Sponsor of this event, will present the latest results of BioSol Water Recycling project. Concretely, two works will be presented:

  • Production of microalgae-based biofertilizer and water for reuse from wastewater in El Toyo WWTP.
  • Carbon footprint assessment of microalgae systems for wastewater treatment.

BioSol Demo 2 in El Toyo- Almería is running since last summer 2018. It supposes 3000 m2 of microalgae reactor for wastewater treatment. The algae biomass produced in this system is valorized for the production of biofertilizers.
