The Euronews programme Futuris came to visit the facilities used for the SaltGae project to understand the potential of this technology. 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. The process is as old as life on earth. But scientists believe that photosynthesis, where plants use carbon dioxide, water and light to make their own food, is
The Stakeholder Platform is an innovative tool for the mobilization and networking of stakeholders from all the different sectors related to wastewater, and for the dissemination of results with the aim of promoting paradigm shift in perception from ‘wastewater treatment’ to ‘resource valorisation’ Go to the SaltGae Stakeholder Platform! The main expected impacts are: Strengthening the competitiveness and growth of companies by developing innovations meeting the needs of European and global markets Contribution to the

A new project, which is set to revolutionise tidal turbine blades, has begun developing a state-of-the-art computer model to simulate blade wear and tear. The simulations will be used by the NEMMO (Next Evolution in Materials and Modelling for Ocean energy) project team to deliver a more performant class of turbine blade. The NEMMO project will both improve the yield of tidal turbines and bring down the cost of producing energy from the tides. The
The project, Next Evolution in Materials and Models for Ocean Energy (NEMMO), will boost the competitiveness of tidal energy by optimising tidal turbine blade design and performance.  It aims to create a larger, lighter and more durable composite blade for floating tidal turbines, enabling devices to reach capacities of over 2 MW. The project will: Design, model and test blade materials and prototypes Enable developers to significantly reduce both capital and operational costs Improve the
