The Community denitrifies the waters of the Los Alcázares treatment plant through a pilot system of pruning remains (02/05/2019)

The Region of Murcia has launched a pilot project in the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) of Los Alcázares that uses pruning waste to denitrify the waters.

This treatment plant houses a bioreactor formed by wood chips from adjoining crops, developed by the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT) and the University of Murcia (UMU), which captures the surface waters near the EDAR and are used for the development of the pilot project.

This technology uses pruning chips as a carbon source so that microorganisms can perform denitrification.

The plant material added to the bioreactor is a carbon source used for the proliferation of microorganisms responsible for nitrogen removal.

The Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Miguel Ángel del Amor, visited today this infrastructure where he stated that "the project joins the different initiatives put in place by farmers, irrigation communities, and research centers and centers , among others".

This technology allows reducing the amount of nitrogen in urban waters from the Quaternary aquifer of the Campo de Cartagena and even future concentrated brines.

The Regional Sanitation and Wastewater Treatment Entity (Esamur) ratifies that denitrification is achieved by 90 percent.

Del Amor affirmed that "the development and innovation of the union of all is making similar projects that take advantage of the circular economy become a reality".

He also stated that "the reduction of water nutrients is now a reality, now we have different technologies that demonstrate it and it is time to start doing it on a larger scale".

In addition, through three other bioreactors, the comparative action between different materials is tested to verify the effectiveness in the elimination of nitrogen.
