Project Description

LIFE ECOGRANULARWATER
LIFE ECOGRANULARWATERLIFE16 ENV/ES/000196
‘Technology based on biological methods for the removal of nitrates, phosphates, pesticides and other pollutants from groundwater supplies for human consumption’

The LIFE ECOGRANULARWATER Project is a “Drinking water” project approved within the “Environment and Resource Efficiency” focus area of the 2016 Call of the LIFE Programme.

It aims to demonstrate the efficiency of technology based on biological methods for the removal of nitrates, phosphates, pesticides and other pollutants from groundwater supplies for human consumption. The project proposes a low-cost technology solution for municipalities affected by this environmental problem.
The project will be implemented by a partnership integrated by the University of Granada (Spain), Aalto University (Finland), Construcciones Otero Company (Spain) and the Provincial Council of Granada (Spain), which acts as partnership coordinator.
