Granular activated algae technology for wastewater treatment and resources recovery
Copyright 2022. All Rights Reserved.
Working together for a green, competitive and inclusive Europe
is focusing on alternative wastewater treatment technological flow based on the use of patented granular activated algae system for increased efficiency of the treatment process, reduction of operating cost, and advanced resources recovery.
GRAALrecovery project consists of 4 partners institutions
The envisaged treatment process is distinguished by positive environmental and economic effects compared to conventional wastewater treatment systems sustaining the concept of sustainable wastewater treatment by:
The project's objectives follow the demonstration in relevant environmental conditions of the proposed emerging biotechnology, underlining the technology performance and its economic and environmental impact.
complying to the strategy of reducing operating costs (eliminating aeration cost)
targeting the global strategy on reducing greenhouse gas emissions by capturing the carbon dioxide resulted from aerobic biodegradation of organic matter
targeting WWTP utility strategy concerning waste management as the residual microalgae-bacteria biomass can be used for resources recovery
