MicroAlgae 4.0 – Microalgae cultivation in a WRRF scheme to improve circularity and risk-based assurance in wastewater treatment using digital tools
To this aim, MicroAlgae 4.0 will focus on overcoming the barriers that hinder the wide implementation of microalgae-based systems by improving the performance and reliability of the process, developing innovative digital tools that monitor and automate the system, and assuring the safety of the by-products obtained.
MicroAlgae 4.0 follows some principles recognised in the European Green Deal, specifically: i) Circular Economy (CE) principles; ii) safety in reclaimed water and nutrient management; iii) digitalisation; iv) water-energy-food-ecosystems (WEFE) Nexus approach; and v) the zero-pollution ambition.
