The pilot plant for the INTEGROIL project, built and in operation
The aim of the European INTEGROIL project, coordinated by ACCIONA Agua, is to develop a new integrated solution for the treatment of industrial wastewater of complex composition, with the final goal of fostering its reuse. For that purpose, a modular pilot plant comprising several technologies and controlled by an innovative decision support system has been constructed. The individual prototypes installed are flotation, ceramic ultrafiltration, catalytic wet air oxidation, advanced oxidation and reverse osmosis, which have been designed and constructed by each project partner and assembled in maritime containers.
The project has started its third and last year of life and the demonstration stage is currently underway in the two Oil&Gas scenarios: upstream (oil extraction) and downstream (refinery wastewater treatment).
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 688989.
