Join as partner in a consortium. Soustenible groundwater management in region with water stress of the Mediterranean
Topic 1.1.1 RIA Sustainable groundwater management in water-stressed Mediterranean areas (Section 1) Topic 2.1.2 RIA Management of low quality waters under water scarcity and climate change conditions (Section 2)
We represent a huge cluster such as ceramic cluster, hence we work very closely with these companies and wáter management company and public authorities.
Hence, we offer ourselves as a potential partner, to be able to apply a solution in the region of Castellon that suffers water stress and with an uncertain future outlook. This is a region that requires improved management and control of groundwater bodies.
We are experts in fields of: Advanced membrane treatments; Water management in industry, optimization; Wastewater reuse; Extraction of raw materials from wastewater; Characterization of groundwater and Thermal exploitation of aquifers.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The Institute of Ceramic Technology (ITC) is a joint institute focused on Research, and established thanks to the agreement between the Research Association of Ceramic Industries (AICE) and the Jaume I University of Castellón (UJI), was born in 1969 as a response to the needs and requirements of the industries of the Spanish ceramic cluster.
The ITC works in several fields one of them is the enviornmental: water, LCA, emissions, energy and renewable energies, etc..
Our work is focus in optimization the water use in Castellón region, where there is water stress, and it is one of the Spanish region with most dependency on groundwater. Also, the aquifer of this region suffers seriour problems of overexploitation and sea water intrusion. In addition, the Ceramic Spanish production is in this region, with a huge groundwater consumption
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
