On March 24th, the Ecosens Aquamonitrix project hosted its final project conference: Life Ecosens Aquamonitrix Project Workshop – From prototype to commercialization.
The conference objective was to inform the audience of the results of the project. The conference also informed the audience about the practical applications for real time analysers, like the Aquamonitrix® analyser, in real life conditions as shown by the LIFE Dublin Urban Rivers and LIFE iBATHWATER projects.
LIFE Dublin Urban Rivers project is looking at new approaches to improve river water quality by dealing with misconnections on surface water lines, using Integrated Constructed Wetlands and targeted door to door misconnection inspections; a comparison of the effectiveness of these two approaches will also be undertaken.
Life iBATHWATER is using advanced urban water management to efficiently ensure bathing water quality using a combination of technological solutions – satellite treatment technologies, an automated continuous E. coli analyser and an open platform knowledge decision support system.
Finally, the Holifab project brings together experts in 3D printing, injection moulding and microfluidic system design for the prototyping, industrialization and production of biochemical applications which can be used in analysers like the Aquamonitrix® nitrate/nitrite analyser.
