Electric' bacteria can purify sewage water –fast: iMETland report in Euronews

H2020 project iMETland is the subject of a report on Futuris, the Euronews programme dedicated to European research.

Coordinator Abraham Esteve-Núñez, together with researchers Carlos Aragón and Juan José Salas from CENTA, and Carlos Arias from Aarhus University, Denmark, explain this new, environmentally friendly way to purify wastewater in small communities. The combination of electroactive bacteria with innovative electroconductive material leads to outperformance of classical biofilters, resulting in 10-fold higher depuration rates than classical techniques.

iMETland has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 642190.
