The ECUVal project is a green business based on an innovative wastewater system which combines electrochemical techniques with UV irradiation for the treatment of dyeing textile wastewaters and the reuse of the treated effluents.
The textile dyeing and finishing industry produces large volumes of coloured wastewater. An important problem arises in reactive dyes processes as they are non biodegradable and require high amounts of salt. ECUVal is mainly addressed to them. The current policies concerning water and energy consumption conduce to the recycling and reuse.
