Problems of sufficient water supply in the arid and semi-arid regions of the European Union prompted the Environmental Institute of the Joint Research Centre Ispra to study, the possibilities to recover water for reuse from the wastewater treatment effluents, as well as from specific wastewater sources of industrial origin situated in the province of Cagliari/Sardinia. Following to the monitoring of effluent quality of the five major depuration stations, on-site recovery experiments have been performed using the Mobile Wastewater Treatment Unit (WTU) on van-basis, described elsewhere. The results suggest that, based on the observation of sum parameters (COD,TOC,AOX),all of the effluents sources studied show reuse potential to some extend.
