ASSESSMENT AND IMPROVEMENT OF THE URBAN WATER CYCLE ECO-EFFICIENCY USING LCA AND LCC www.life-aquatik.eu

Aquaenvec Project presented in SETAC 2014

From 11th to 15th of May, AQUAENVEC’s project, led by CETaqua, has been presented in SETAC 24th Annual Meeting 2014, held in Basel (Switzerland).

The SETAC European Meeting every year brings together experts from academia devoted to environment and health protection.

The meeting focuses on the most recent advances in environmental sciences and provides a platform for how to implement this knowledge to improve environmental risk assessment and shape policies.

The AQUAENVEC project has presented at the SETAC the next contributions:

• Reckoning of Operational and Environmental Benchmarks within 180 Wastewater Treatment Plants in Spain

• Economic valuation of nutrients removal from wastewater

• Environmental Life Cycle Costing Applied to the Urban Water Cycle

• Environmental consequences of storm-water harvesting for flood prevention.

An Executive Board meeting was held during the conference in Basel as the project consortium was present. Next steps on technical actions were decided. Tuesday morning there was a meeting on cost functions and Data Envelopment Analysis with CETaqua’s and UV’s researchers.
