PerFORM WATER 2030 collaborates with other research projects characterized by similar objectives or methodologies, with the aim of enhancing possible synergies within a virtuous network of skills.
In the last ten years Digital Textile Printing (DTP) technologies have been revolutionizing the way textiles are printed. Unfortunately, DTP requires the fabric to be fully pre-treated using urea in order to let the ink properly penetrate. Urea is then completely washed-out and the resulting wastewater is extremely rich in nitrogen. Current wastewater treatment plants suffer this nitrogen overload and the LIFE DeNTreat project comes with an actual answer: decentralised pre-treatment modules based on the ANAMMOX (ANaerobic AMMonium Oxidation) microbial process can sustainably abate the ammonium pollution where it is created.
