Final Report - TURBOWASH (Construction and Demolition Waste Washing System with Increased Mobility through Rapid Coagulation of Turbid Water)

Funded under: FP6-SME


This is the final report of the TURBOWASH project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, TURBOWASH aimed to investigate problems associated with coagulants in the water recycling industry by employing combined electrochemical and separation technologies.

The report describes the innovative mobile washing system of 15 000 litre capacity developed to reduce the waste and safety hazards associated with chemical treatment of water in the EU construction and demolition waste (C&DW) industry.

Researchers together with small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) developed an environment friendly combined electrocoagulation and separation system with continuous in situ monitoring and feedback to increase efficiency and quality of water recycling. The technology was validated on a pilot basis using two case studies with conditions representing the processing of building rubble, soil extraction deposits and roadway demolition residues.
