Sustainable Technologies to Improve Water Supply

Sustainable Technologies to Improve Water Supply 800 266 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Universidade Federal do Ceará  – Brazil

This proposal deals with the implementation of sustainable technologies to improve the quality of the supply of drinking water in the semi-arid region and seeks a technological solution for the pre-treatment of water by uniformly varied electric field (electrolytic process) associated with electrocoagulation/flotation ( ECF) and capacitive deionization (DCI), using metallic and carbon electrodes.

These technologies will be applied to the pre-treatment of water preceding the conventional stages of a Mobile Water Treatment Plant, providing the production of drinking water in a cleaner way with minimization and recovery of residues, operating with alternative energies. In this way, the project seeks to be in line with the 2030 Agenda of the ONU (mainly SDG 6 – clean water and sanitation) and with the national water resources plan (PNRH), contributing to the improvement of the supply of water from the perspective of development and sustainable future.
