In the field of water, Eurecat applies the concepts of sustainability and circular economy to the development of new technologies for the improvement of the integral water cycle, helping to increase the competitiveness of the business sector, while at the same time bringing benefits to society as a whole. It has laboratories and pilot plants, scientific equipment and data processing centres that enable it to face the present and future challenges of water management, which make up the main lines of R+D+i:

  • Water treatment, regeneration and reuse.
  •  Recovery of valuable components from water (nutrients, metals and biomolecules).
  • Water purification and distribution.
  • Water-energy nexus, with special emphasis on energy production coupled to water treatment.
  •  Decontamination of groundwater (nitrates, hydrocarbons, organochlorine compounds and metals).
  • Quantitative analysis of human health risks.
  • Life cycle and cost analysis in water management.
  • Advanced chemical and microbiological analysis.
  • Design, development and deployment of intelligent platforms and tools.
  • Decision Support Systems.
  • Applied artificial intelligence, optimisation algorithms, semantic web and linked data.
  • Descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics
  • Interoperability and information exchange systems based on open water domain standards.
  •  Simulation tools.
  •  Mobile Applications.
