The eight innovative demEAUmed technologies, after tests at pre-demonstration level, have been scaled-up, placed at the demonstration site and are being run in real conditions with two main lines for greywater and wastewater treatment. The majority of demEAUmed technologies can be implemented singularly and some of them are being also compared, in terms of efficiency and other environmental and economic parameters, to define the best conditions. All the experiments results are being compared with the requirements of the Spanish Royal Decree 1620/2007 (SRD 1620/2007) and other national and European legislation for many possible reuse applications (like toilet flushing, irrigation of private gardens, golf irrigation, groundwater recharge and laundry). Finally, all installed technologies were connected and are monitored by a common server for supervision, control and data acquisition.

An integrated assessment of the environmental and socio-economic impacts of the innovative technological solution of demEAUmed project has been undertaken by demEAUmed consortium under the leadership of the Sustainability Division of LEITAT.
The methodology applied in the assessment is based on the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), the Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and the Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA). The primary results of the LCA and LCC have been obtained and analysed involving four technologies: the Electrocoagulation-Flotation technology, the Photoelectro-Fenton technology, the VertECO technology, and the Electrochemical Ozonation technology.
|The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) methodology is an innovative process designed to enhance innovation and business performance. Based on extensive research which shows that this kind of hands-on, “play” context produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities, LSP stimulates imagination and supports an effective dialogue – for everyone in the organisation.
LGI consulting, demEAUmed partner responsible for exploitation activities, has conducted in the past a number of ideation workshops applying methodologies that facilitate group discussion, knowledge sharing and problem solving. Back-to-back with the 6th demEAUmed Progress Meeting, LGI consulting organised a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop in order to boost further discussions on mature enough technologies for exploitation and potential strategical partnerships between partners after the end of the project.
Organised by Fraunhofer, demEAUmed 6th general meeting was held on January 18-19th, 2017 to discuss the progress of the project and its planned activities for its final 6 months in the presence of the advisory board member: Günter langergraber who gave his feed-back and recommendations during the event.
Prior to the meeting ahalf-day 'Lego serious play workshop' was organised by demEAUmed exploitation manager LGI consulting for the technology providers. Following the workshop, the consortium visited Fraunhofer facilities located in Stuttgart. After that, a presentation of the status of each work package and the related issues were discussed. Results on the treatment and reuse of greywater have been provided, while the final demonstration for wastewater are still on-going.
On the following day, the consortium had round table discussions to evaluate the project's progress and plan the next actions including the final conference and the policy-makers workshop which are planned to take place on May 18th, 2017 in Barcelona.
