Modularity and adaptability to local contexts are key aspects of the project’s demonstration approach, with different combinations of the technologies deployed across the demonstration sites (in France, Ireland, Italy, Romania, Scotland, Spain, Ecuador, Peru, Tanzania, Turkey and India). For example, the site in India includes lumbrifiltration, daphniafiltration and Bio-Solar Purification – while the site in Italy includes lumbrifiltration and UV treatment.  Indicative results from these two sites are provided below.
