PROJECT Ô – Circular Water Technology Implementation in Croatian Demo Site Omiš – Galeb d.d.
Project Ô shows how local targeted water treatment technologies can help improve global water management allowing current and future generations to benefit from this shared resource.
Project demonstrates how water treatment technologies can improve regional capacity for sustaining crucial water supplies, while lowering costs, reducing energy demands and giving local regions access to alternative water sources. Galeb textile factory is one of the four demonstration sites where Project Ô implements new technologies and solutions for water treatment. With the population of around 15,000 people, this town is settled in Croatian region of Dalmatia, right at the place where the Cetina River enters the Adriatic Sea.Textile production is a water-intensive industry. Water is used to clean raw materials and as part of the dyeing process. Production also relies on many different substances, which can end up in used water streams and are difficult to treat.
This project has received from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 776816. Call for proposal: H2020-CIRC-2017TwoStage
