Periodic Reporting for period 1 - ToxMate (ToxMate: Automated on-line and real-time monitoring of wastewater toxicity with ToxMate)
Reporting period: 2018-11-01 to 2019-02-28
Our project, ToxMate, proposes a tool that does real-time and continuous monitoring of micropollutants in water. The tool monitors the behaviour of 3 types of invertebrates and, using a patented algorithm, allows the fastest analysis (less than 6 minutes) on water toxicity, including MP, in water treatment plants. This is a huge step forward towards controlling water micropollutants as permits water treatment plant management to optimize their water processes for properly treating MP, improving the discharged water quality, allowing water reuse and reducing OPEX.
