The awareness raising workshop brought together the promoters of three EU funded research projects in Lebanon dealing with, respectively: domestic wastewater treatment and reuse, micro-pollutants in sea water and the treatment of water effluent streams from hospitals.
The main scope of the event was to exploration opportunities for cooperation among the three projects. To this effect, a brainstorming session delved not only into how to build synergies to raise awareness, but also how to capitalise further each individual project’s research outcomes.
Organised by the University of Balamand in Lebanon, the workshop was joined by 35 participants who attended in person, and 10 participants who joined online.
AQUACYCLE is set to bring an eco-innovative wastewater treatment technology that will consist of anaerobic digestion, constructed wetlands and solar treatment for the cost-effective treatment of urban wastewater with minimal costs of operation and maximum environmental benefits.
