Press Release

Via this project, the partners are planning to do extensive research in the field of water treatment, water purification and management of water pollution. The objective of this project is to study, design and develop a mobile water purification plant based on a novel methodology. Using this new approach the technology of water purification moves to the next level, which is easier to approach for everyone, everywhere with much cheaper price. The mobility function of this plant makes it easier to transports the unit to areas where are hard to access. In addition, the plant is very useful for poor countries with lack of access to stationary clean water. The method is much cheaper than the traditional method and the plant does work even with solar panels. This project has a huge target area. The first target is to revolutionize the current water purification approach everywhere in the world. Also in a more detailed approach, poor countries, which suffer from lack of access to clean water, are the emergency type of users of this novel system. 

The project main outputs are: 

  • Extensive research on novel water purification approach;
  • Design a pilot plant of the purification system;
  • Development of the pilot plant;
  • Test the plant with a couple of biggest end-users in the region;
  • Design and development of the mobile plant.
