SaltGae solution

The treatment of saline wastewater in presence of organic content represents a challenge for many industrial sectors.
SaltGae project aims to develop and demonstrate a techno-economically viable solution for the treatment of saline wastewater.
Moreover, this project will represent a case study for demonstration of SaltGae solutions to the cross-cutting barriers to innovation identified in the European Innovation Partnership on Water  (EIP Water).

How microalgae can treat wastewater and turn it into a valuable resource

Researchers for the European ‘Saltgae’ project are demonstrating how algae can cut the costs of treating polluted water – and do it in a sustainable way.
