After an initial screening treatment, the wastewater is treated by a membrane bioreactor (MBR) that couples the biological action of the bacteria with the physical action of membrane separation. The water leaving the MBR is treated and can be reused for irrigation and road cleaning.
Organic waste is methanized. Methanisation is a technology that consists, through different stages of anaerobic digestion, of converting the organic matter contained in the waste into energy (electrical and/or thermal) and a digestate.
Microalgae are produced in photobioreactors that take the form of closed glass tubes (tubular PBRs). Microalgae, photosynthetic organisms, grow using light energy allowing them to fix atmospheric carbon, a strong greenhouse gas, and convert it into biomass.
