Last October, CITEVE was at the Tessile Serico Sostenibile Center in Italy to kick off the Life Cascade project. It aims to develop industrial water treatment solutions before being returned to nature or before re-entering the industrial process. It is another of the dozens of sustainable projects in which the technology center is involved.
The project aims to “develop analytical and technological wastewater treatment procedures aimed at detecting and removing critical categories of emerging micropollutants for the textile sector”. With perfluorates (PFAS) being the most critical and persistent micropollutants, detail the presentation sheet.
As a partner, CITEVE will be responsible for the “qualitative and quantitative assessment of microplastics present in wastewater from industrial textile finishing processes”, shared on social media. The consortium unites three countries (Portugal, Italy, and the Netherlands), and has 12 entities.
