The Ecogranularwater plant reduces costs in the water service.
It is possible to produce drinking water with a biological system at a lower cost than using reverse osmosis.Ver / More
Main lines of the Business Plan
The business plan drawn up to commercialize the Ecogranularwater (EGW) technology has outlined the fundamental guidelines to be followed over a five-year time horizon, with the aim of ensuring the transfer and replicability of the project. The results have determined that it is viable from a technical, economic and financial point of view, allowing the generation of employment and obtaining an attractive profitability for the promoter company.Ver / More
The Ecogranularwater biological system has proven to have a lower carbon and environmental footprint than reverse osmosis.
The carbon footprint of reverse osmosis is 2.5 times higher than that of the Ecogranularwater plant. The comparative environmental analysis has been developed through the Life Cycle Analysis methodology.Ver / More
