The LIFE WIRE project boosts industrial water reuse by making available non-conventional water resources through the reuse of urban wastewater in industries. LIFE WIRE concretely aims at demonstrating the feasibility of one or more technological configurations based on the combination of leading-edge technologies (ultrafiltration (UF), carbon nanostructured material (CNM) filtration and reverse osmosis (RO)) to polish and reuse reclaimed municipal wastewater in the chemical, liquid waste disposal and electro-coating industries.

LIFE WIRE is a demonstration project co-funded by the European Commission, through the LIFE+ Environmental Policy & Governance programme. The project started in October 2013 and is expected to be completed in September 2016. The LIFE WIRE project is coordinated by CETaqua water technology center, and counts with Aigües de Barcelona, Empresa Metropolitana de Gestió del Cicle Integral de l’Aigua, S.A, Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB), ARCHROMA, ECOIMSA, and TACSA as project partners.
