H2020 Programme Funding for New Sanitation Solution

03-05-15

Innovayt has assisted Aalborg Rørteknik ApS with the writing and development of a successful proposal to the SME Innovation instrument under the Horizon 2020 programme.

The project’s main objective is the implementation of a new sanitation solution, applicable in remote areas without access to sewage infrastructure. This turnkey solution, consisting of 3 main modules (hygiene unit, waste water treatment, sludge handling), has superior advantages to alternative technology by being mobile, reusable, hygienic, environmentally friendly and affordable. Quality sanitation is a huge global, growing environmental and health problem with large costs to society. Poor hygiene and waste treatment results in lower productivity, spreading of diseases and pollution. There is a lack of efficient and green solutions addressing specific sanitation needs in remote areas such as: Refugee and military camps, remote industrial and household sites. The project will address an innovative and sustainable solution, with clear benefits for users, with consequent impacts in the environment and the society as a whole.

Phase 1 of the project will perform a demonstration exercise, as well as conduct extended market studies to develop an appropriate IP strategy, in preparation of a phase 2 project.
