WP100. Management and coordination

In this WP, AEMA will be responsible for establishing a Project Management Plan and Quality Plan, describing the organisation of the project team and the management and quality procedures chosen for the project. The coordinator will also be in charge of the organisation of the project meetings, of regular project reviews and of the reporting to the Commission.

WP200. Medium size wineries´ effluent characterization

The aims of this WP is to assess the type of water that will be treated and to gain special knowledge on it, especially its flow and physiochemical characterisation. Furthermore, a bibliographical review will be done of all the existing sources on anaerobic digestion and its use for industrial water, and in particular for wineries’ effluents. Finally, the anaerobic biodegradability of the sewage water will be evaluated. This will allow us to gain precise information on the nature of Medium size wineries’ effluents and assess the variables that may affect the choice of relevant technologies for its treatment.

WP300. Reactor configuration alternatives for high performance anaerobic digestion

During this phase, the requirements for the reactor configuration will be considered and the selection of the best technology to be used will be chosen. This WP will allow the research teams to analyse thoroughly the needs of medium size wineries for the treatment of their effluents and to choose accurately the technology that will be developed later in the project and that will produce the best results.

WP400. Design, Testing & validation of prototype

The aim of this WP is to create a prototype for the treatment of medium sized wineries’ effluents. It includes the design, the testing and the validation of the prototype. According to the results of the test phase, re-design activities will be carried out, in order to adjust the parameters of the prototype to fit the needs of medium sized wineries.

WP500. Mathematical modelling and control tools

Modelling is typically carried out to provide ex-situ understanding and knowledge of the process in order to characterise the behaviour of a system under different operating conditions and due to varying process inputs. This WP will allow the team to model the behaviour of the three phases: gas, liquid and solids through the digester. This will serve as a necessary background to the development of the AD reactor design tool

WP600. AD reactor design tool

The AD design tool WP aims to establish the fundamentals for developing a toolkit which should provide design options that can be guided by application of algorithms based upon the system behaviour specified in WP500, as well as validation results of WP400. In principle, it will support the formulation process of the characteristics an AD system must have. It shall comprise tools for system specification, display, and functional applications integration as well as verification procedures (matching against specifications).

WP700. Dissemination and outreach

This WP aims to facilitate the sharing of knowledge within the Consortium and with key projects in the field and major stakeholders, to raise public awareness of the developed technologies and solutions among the scientific community and the general public.

WP800. S&T and Transfer of knowledge

This WP aims to bring specific knowledge from the current market, and highlight what the new technological demands are for the non-commercial research organizations. This refers to new technological demands identified by the commercial sector in the current market, which the scientific community also need to know, in order to be able to focus their research towards real and valuable applications.
