Nanotechnological Application in WAter DESalination (NAWADES)
Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"The main objective of the NAWADES project is to study, design, produce, and test new water desalination filter technology from four points of view:1. the structure of multi-layer membrane filter, including UV light distributed by glass fibers inside the membrane stack2. the materials used to build the filter, including fouling and scaling monitoring3. the coating treatments applied to the surface of the filter using plasma and nano-TiO2 fibers4. the filtration process with integrated removal of bio-fouling.The new filter technology shall provide long-life and antifouling filters to be used in Reverse Osmosis (RO) water desalinisation processes with a higher efficiency and life-time, less energy consumption (lower pressure), and less maintenance (lower cost)."
