Bacterial Removal from Recycled Water from Aquaculture Activities

This project aims to explore the feasibility of the UV technique to clean the reused shellfish processing water.

Project objectives include the determination microbiological and physicochemical characteristics of the shellfish processing water; investigation of UV efficacy for wastewater treatment; and in this context the proposal of a shellfish wastewater treatment system to facilitate production of a safe food product and greater water efficiency in the industry.
