Experimental reaseach

Experimental reaseach aims to test innovative solutions at a small scale, in order to understand their potentiality and the upscaling. A classical example of experimental research is the use of constructed wetland pilot plants to test the treatment of particular pollutants, such as those driven by landfill leachate or industrial textile wastewater. In these cases, an experimental study is always necessary to design a full-scale system.

IRIDRA has designed and monitored many pilot plants for different wastewater typologies, for instance, aerated constructed wetlands for swine wastewater, aerated tertiary treatment for colour removal, landfill leachate treatment, or green walls for treatment and reuse of greywater.

In the following, some of the most relevant pilot-scale studies of which IRIDRA has done the monitoring and the dissemination.

Pilot plant for treatment of swine wastewater
