MIDES project concludes with publication of final report
Since April 2016, our MIDES consortium has been developing the low-energy system of desalination with wastewater treatment – from lab scale, to pre-pilot, to demonstration sites. Today marks the end of our Horizon 2020 project (4 years + 6-months extension), and hopefully the beginning of further development of the advancements that have been made. “With a patent awarded for our MDC desalination and wastewater treatment method, and two pilot plants now in operation, it feels like we’re making big progress toward some very worthwhile goals,” said Dr. Juan Arévalo, MIDES project manager, Aqualia.
Thanks to all of our project partners, stakeholders and other colleagues in the water sector who participated in the project. Much has been accomplished in a new approach to providing drinking water for people in the future.
