Today, 4th of March, is the World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development, an official International day proclaimed in 2019 by the United Nationals Educations, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). This was based on a proposal from the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO).
The topic of this year is “Build back wiser – engineering the future” and there is a Hackathon programmed in which engineering students will work on team in order to solve a global problem. This year, the case study will be in line with three Sustainable Development Goals (SDG):
- Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production
- Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
These challenges are aligned with the main objectives of LIFE INFUSION project. As you already know, the project aim is to demonstrate a resource recovery-based innovative scheme to obtain useful sustainable outputs such as biogas, nutrients and regenerated water.
Therefore, INFUSION proposes an environmentally friendly solution based on the combination of highly efficient biological and physical-chemical separation technologies to lower environmental impact of municipal solid waste management. By making the treatment process more efficient and the possibility to produce added-value products, the project contributes to reduce natural resources consumption and to the change towards an economic model based on circular bioeconomy.
The LIFE INFUSION project is co-funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Union under contract number LIFE19 ENV/ES/000283.
