The results obtained can be extrapolated to any other WWTP.
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 2,000 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 3,6 billionhave no access to a basic sanitation service, resulting in avoidable deaths, chronic disease, fewer hours of education and low productivity.
ACCIONA has positioned itself as a key player in the water treatment sector. Its innovative management seeks to resolve the challenges with respect to the shortage of water resources.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy accounts for 35 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low-carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the emerging needs of humanity and to minimize their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its effects to be a strategic priority. The company works to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The project is coordinated by the water business of ACCIONA and counts with the participation of Agencia EFE through its EFE Green Platform, with the aim of expanding the impact of the project and approaching it to the society.
The proposed system is based on the use of non-conventional wastewater treatment technologies with low energy consumption, like anaerobic processes, especially if they are run in warm climate regions. The project has been implemented at pilot plant scale, located at the premises of the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) of Archena (Murcia) and the results obtained can be extrapolated to any other WWTP.
