This project is addressed to improve the capacity and effectiveness of constructed wetland (CW) systems as sustainable wastewater (WW) treatment system. HIGHWET project aims to develop, operate and validate new configurations of CWs in order to obtain high rate CWs for treating different types of WW. New approaches of vertical and horizontal CWs include innovative materials as gravel bed, aeration devices for increasing biological development and hybrid configurations (hydrolysis anaerobic reactor and CW systems) for decreasing required surface of conventional CWs.
HIGHWET system approach will enhance the implementation of these treatment technologies not only due to their low cost O&M (operation and maintenance) characteristics but also due to their high organic and hydraulic loading rate capacity. An estimated 20 Million euros turnover for lead-users is expected after the initial exploitation stage.
