As part of the AdvIQwater project, co-financed by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2021-2027 program, the Polish Ecological Club Pomeranian District, together with the Gdansk University of Technology as the Project Leader, in cooperation with partners from Denmark and Estonia, is tackling the challenge of preventing the introduction of micropollutants, including active pharmaceutical ingredients, into the Baltic Sea.
The AdvIQwater project aims to develop integrated technologies for the treatment of water and wastewater from residues of active pharmaceutical ingredients based on photocatalytic processes combined with biological processes and the recovery of valuable raw materials from wastewater through fermentation. The project is expected to result in a pilot plant based on an advanced wastewater treatment system. During the implementation of the activities, the partners will hold workshops and seminars and organize a network of interregional cooperation in the Baltic Sea region in the field of raising awareness of the negative impact of pharmaceuticals on the environment and our health, and promoting innovative solutions in water and wastewater treatment systems.
