Integrating technologies with water recycling and/or biodegradation of wastes can increase the quality of natural waters. To succeed with this, fast and reliable monitoring of wastewater is required. In this context the main objective of the project is to create a methodology for fast monitoring of pollution levels in wastewater. The methodology relies on a biosensor array-pattern recognition system. Array will consist of enzyme-, DNA-, and cell-modified electrodes genera-ting fast multivariate response due to interaction of pollutants (phenols, heavy metals, lignins, surfactants) with bio molecules. By the use of chemo metrics this response will be converted into pattern and enable fast estimation of wastewater composition and toxicity. The patters will be derived from simultaneous analysis of wastewater with array electrodes, classical analytical techniques and toxicity tests. The deviation of the pattern from allowed or known will generate alarm.
