Water cycles of Mediterranean tourist facilities: A challenge or an opportunity?

Hotel SambaAs the project coordinator of demEAUmed project, it is an honour for me to present the first newsletter of the project where you can read the most outstanding results and developments achieved in the first 24 months. These two years have been nothing but a successful collaboration among all the participants of demEAUmed. The consortium has achieved the proposed milestones and deliverables planned in the document of work (DOW) well in time. If you have the opportunity to come to the region of Costa Bravain Catalonia and visit the city Lloret de Mar you will see the integration of a set of innovative technologies to treat the wastewater of the hotel Samba (project’s demo-site).


This main achievement has been possible thanks to the excellent work performed by all the partners and their commitment towards the development of the future decentralized wastewater treatment in Mediterranean tourist facilities. On behalf of the whole demEAUmed’s team I hope you enjoy this first newsletter and I warmly welcome you to visit our website to have more information about us and demEAUmed.
