Objectives

The main objectives of the project include the design and installation of pilot wastewater treatment plants at the hospitals of Heraklion, Greece and Larnaca, Cyprus for the removal of antibiotic resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes. The units will consist of anaerobic MBR, phytoremediation through Lemna minor, photocatalysis and microfiltration. The project includes also the economic and environmental evaluation of the operation of the pilot units and the development of guidelines and design models, for full implementation of the total outflow of hospital units, both in the participating hospitals (scale up) and in other hospitals of other areas (transferability and replicability).
