Innovations

The Ecuval project for the treatment of wastewater from textile dyeing and the subsequent reuse of treated effluents. This project was carried out together with the research institute Intexter at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and co-financed by the European Union within the Eco-Innovation initiative of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme, CIP. It is an ecological technology based on an innovative system that combines electrochemical techniques with UV irradiation, which allows an economic saving of between 70% and 100% in terms of water and up to 100% in terms of salt, besides being respectful towards the environment.
