Last week, LIFE INFUSION project’s coordinator presented the INFUSION solution in the IWA World Water Congress, organized by the International Water Association (IWA) in Copenhagen, Denmark. In words of his president, Tom Mollenkopf, “the Congress is a space to inspire change, stimulate innovative research and for sharing of best practices for a water wise world”.
The main objective of the Congress was bringing together core water sector groups, such as those focused on urban water and urban water services, as well as participants from industry and agriculture, architects and urban planners, soil and groundwater experts and hydrologists, among others.
Moreover, the congress will report on the water sector progress aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The emphasis was on SDG6, which is dedicated to water and sanitation. Furthermore, the event also highlighted and explored the interwoven relation of water with all 17 of the global SDGs.
On the other hand, Caroline Sieldfeld presented our solution and the laboratory tests results, bringing the opportunity to the audience to know how the assembling of various proven technologies could be useful to recover nutrients, generate biogas and reclaim water from the liquid fraction of organic fraction of municipal waste and landfill leachate.
What is more, this event allowed exploring synergies between the LIFE INFUSION and some of the most relevant projects in the field of wastewater treatment.
The LIFE INFUSION project is co-funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Union under contract number LIFE19 ENV/ES/000283.
