THIRASSIA WWTP, SANTORINI, GREECE
Our design for the Thirassia WWTP has been chosen by AquaNES amongst 13 innovative sites in Europe, India and Israel, as a demonstration site for alternative and innovative wastewater treatment.
The recently constructed wastewater treatment plant on the island of Thirasia comprises a number of innovative unconventional treatment methods. Mechanically pre-treated wastewater will undergo solar heterogeneous photo-catalysis with TiO2 as catalyst followed by a constructed wetlands (CWs).
The wastewater treatment is followed by ultrafiltration membranes for the tertiary treatment and the further quality upgrade of effluents. The final effluent is then disinfected and will be reused for irrigation in the proximity of the treatment unit, while subsurface disposal of the surplus of the treated effluent will also take place contributing to aquifer recharge.
ANTIPAROS ISLAND WWTP, GREECE
Our design for the Antiparos WWTP has been chosen by AquaNES amongst 13 innovative sites in Europe, India and Israel, as a demonstration site for alternative and innovative wastewater treatment.
The natural treatment systems of Antiparos WWTP consists of constructed wetland and stabilisation ponds. They are combined with engineered pre-treatment (primary screening and sedimentation) and post-treatment systems (chlorine disinfection), to achieve high pollutant removal efficiency and compliance with the Greek water reuse legislation on using treated effluents for the irrigation of public spaces.
