International cooperation - Desalination, purification and water quality

International cooperation and knowledge transfer in the supply of drinking water, purification and protection of the water quality in isolated areas.

Description

The ITC leads and takes part in large European and regional projects, in cooperation with private companies and other research bodies, in the subject area of desalination by renewable energies, decentralised treatment and monitoring of water quality.

It also carries out transnational cooperation on initiatives related to the supply of drinking water and energy in isolated areas, the sustainable management of water, the treatment and productive use of the waste waters and the evaluation and protection of the water quality.
The fruit of the research activity falls within the following three main strategic lines:
• Design, development and testing of water desalination systems and its application by renewable energies.
• Design, development and testing of water purification systems and further reuse with low energy cost criteria and its application with renewable energies.
• Control and evaluation of water quality.
An important task of international cooperation and knowledge transfer is carried out mainly in Western Africa countries. There are many partners and contacts that collaborate by transferring the most appropriate developments and initiatives in the water sector of the regional scope through programmes of International Cooperation for Development.
Projects, facilities and surveys have been undertaken for more than one decade in Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Cape Verde, Tunisia, Jordan and Egypt. These activities have been focused on:
• Desalination by photovoltaic solar energy powered reverse osmosis systems.
• Solar distillation by the use of membranes.
• Energy efficiency and energy recovery in reverse osmosis plants.
• Natural purification systems.
• Drinking water and disinfection processes and technologies .
• Control and evaluation of the physical-chemical and microbiological quality of the desalinated waters, mains water and seawater.
• Training and dissemination of results in all the foregoing areas.
