AdSWiM

Managed use of treated urban wastewater for the quality of the Adriatic Sea

START DATE

01.01.2019

END DATE

01.01.2021

TOTAL BUDGET

€ 2.035.703,13

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE

3.3. Improve the environmental quality conditions of the sea and coastal area by use of sustainable and innovative technologies and approaches

LEAD PARTNER

University of Udine - Department of Agricultural, Food, Environmental and Animal Sciences

TARGET GROUPS

  • General public;
  • Regional and local development agencies;
  • SMEs and business supporting organizations;
  • Education and training organizations as well as universities and research institutes;
  • Local, regional and national public authorities.

The AdSWiM project is built around the Urban wastewater (UWW) and depuration plants (DP) and it aims of assessing whether the treated UWW from DP, respecting established EU values, can be used as controlled points of nutrients supply, in particular phosphorus, with eliminated risks for both the hygienic quality of the bathing water and the ecosystem stability. This goal is obtained through several well defined activities either at DP level or in marine environment.

PROJECT PARTNER

Politechnic University of Marche

https://www.disva.univpm.it/?language=it


The DiSVA aims (analytical chemistry group) in the AdSWiM project are to assess the quality of the coastal and marine ecosystems and to propose innovative descriptors and/or new reference models. The AdSWiM reserachers will measure the level of nutrients and trace elements in seawater for the evaluation of pollution in the Adriatic Sea. Our expertise in statistical analysis will contribute to identify multiple environmental stressors, affecting the variability of the Adriatic Sea ecosystems.
