Networking with 4 LIFE projects

On January 23rd, Berta Gonzalvo (AITTIP) presented the MULTIBIOSOL project in a networking event with 4 other LIFE projects. The event, titled “ Sustainable waste and wastewater management from agricultural and food industries” was organized by LIFE Seacan and took place in the city of Santiago de Compostela.


Here are the projects that participated in the event:

LIFE Seacan- (LIFE14 ENV/ES/000852) Reducing the pressure of fish canneries on the marine environment with novel effluent treatment and ecosystem monitoring

  • The LIFE SEACAN project is demonstrating the feasibility of applying biofilm-based wastewater treatment systems to reduce the impact of the effluents generated from fish canneries located in coastal zones.

LIFE Multi-AD 4 AgroSMEs - (LIFE17 ENV/ES/000331) High performance multiphase anaerobic reactor for agroindustrial wastewater treatment

  • Reducing the environmental footprint of the food and drink sector via innovative technology and processes.

Life Siamec – (LIFE14 ENV/ES/000849) Integrated anaerobic system for wastewater reclamation at ambient temperature in European climates

  • Reducing the environmental footprint of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment.

Life Smart Fertirrigation – (LIFE14 ENV/ES/000640) Integrated pig manure digestate processing for direct injection of organic liquid fertiliser into irrigation systems

  • LIFE Smart Fertirrigation aims to demonstrate the environmental and economic feasibility of innovative pig manure digestate treatment at biogas plants in order to produce liquid and solid biofertiliser. Reducing the use of mineral fertilisers will cut greenhouse gas emissions and prevent soil acidification and eutrophication.

LIFE MULTIBIOSOL – (LIFE14 ENV/ES/000486) Innovative fully biodegradable mulching films & fruit protection bags for sustainable agricultural practices.

  • Throught the development and demonstration of an innovative, economically viable and fully biodegradable, bio-based plastic, the project will eliminate waste management on fields, reduce agriculture's carbon footprint and improve soil quality.
