 Project objective

The main objective of the PureWater project is the verification of technological and business viability of a novel disruptive and universally adoptable water purification technology possessing close to 100% efficiency and not requiring capital investments. The operation of technology is based on an adsorption membrane produced from environmentally friendly materials (milk protein and activated carbon) and is therefore poised to replace current water purification approaches, thereby contributing to the greening of the EU economy and to facilitating the transition to a resource efficient and climate-smart industry. The technology can be considered infrastructure-free as the membrane fit into existing water treatment equipment (filter press) and does not require any pre- nor post-treatment (unlike to all currently adopted membrane filtering technologies). The components used are low cost materials which makes the proposed concept extremely competitive with respect to currently existing solutions. The focus of the PureWater project will be the validation of the viability of the proposed concept with reference to heavy metals purification. However, the full potential of the technological concept covers almost all the organic and inorganic water pollutant coming from both, industrial and municipal sectors. Our ambition is thus to become the global landmark in the water treatment technology, introducing a single step bio-based, universal, yet simple, cheap and scalable technology for water decontamination. The PureWater’s mid-term ambition is to overcome all persisting challenges of water purification without requiring any modification of the existing pipelines: i) household purification of drinking water; ii) purification of industrial wastewater streams; iii) decontamination and purification of water contaminated from heavy metals and nuclear waste for agricultural purposes.

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