The OZONE4WATER project – Cutting-Edge Ozone-Technology for Water Treatment (in Portuguese, Tecnologia de Ponta de Ozono para Tratamento de Água) is a R&D project funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT), Portugal, within the framework of the 2020 Call for SR&TD Project Grants (reference PTDC/EAM-AMB/4702/2020). It involves four Portuguese entities: (1) the principal contractor – Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto (FEUP) through the Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM – Laboratory of Separation and Reaction Engineering – Laboratory of Catalysis and Materials (LSRE-LCM), a part of the consortium of ALiCE – Associate Laboratory in Chemical Engineering, (2) AdP VALOR – Serviços Ambientais, S.A., a company from the Águas de Portugal group, (3) Enkrott, Gestão e Tratamento de Águas, S.A., and (4) Simbiente – Engenharia e Gestão Ambiental, Lda.

The OZONE4WATER project aims at developing a disruptive ozone-technology for water/wastewater treatment. The new technology will help change the current panorama of ozone-based water treatment solutions by tackling the lack of ozone generators able to produce gas streams rich in ozone, and of contacting reactors with improved gas-liquid mass transfer. Ultimately, this will lead to lower energy consumption for ozone production, and to overcome the need for large contacting reactors and extended contacting times.


Research team

The research team combines leading experts from academia (FEUP) and industry (Enkrott, Adp and SIMBIENTE), bringing their knowledge to joint implementing the proposed activities, by integrating the state of the art, its best know-how and a wide network of contacts and links for a common purpose.


This work is financially supported by national funds through the FCT/MCTES (PIDDAC), under the project PTDC/EAM-AMB/4702/2020.
