 Project objective

One of the key processes for improving water quality is aeration. When waste water is cleansed in sewage farms, water aeration is required to enable the bacteria which consume the particles in suspension to thrive. Current aeration technology is slow, inefficient, very power consuming and smell generating. Electricity is a critical input for delivering municipal wastewater services, and today about 1% of the EU electricity demand is consumed by wastewater treatment plants. Electricity costs are usually between 5% to 30% of total operating costs among wastewater utilities worldwide. Nanogentech offers UFine, a time effective technology, consuming organic waste up to 9 times faster than traditional aeration methods and allowing cost reduction of over 80%. UFine also achieves a remarkable oxygen transfer rate of beyond 90%. UFine will target industrial wastewater treatment plants which treat only 60% of industrial wastewater before discharge. In the UK, there are many Wastewater Treatment Utilities that serve populations of over 2,000 people, above which the Directive’s secondary treatment standards applies. During the feasibility assessment, a minimum viable product will be defined, a go-to-market strategy and a supply chain will be established, as well as further development plan will be drafted. Within the overall project Nanogentech aims to optimize the ultra-fine bubble nozzle to enable a perfect scale-up of the solution from small wastewater utilities to greater agglomeration’s discharges and complete a successful demonstration with a wastewater company in the UK.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "UFINE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
