SITRA and the OXAL Operative Group organise a free webinar on the treatment of waste water in agrifood industries

True to its commitment to innovation and caring for the environment, SITRA, the company specialising in the GIMENO Group’s integral industrial water cycle, is developing, together with the rest of the OXAL Operative Group, a pioneering project to improve the treatment of waste water from the agrifood industry affected by the presence of sulphur.

Within the framework of this project, the OXAL Operative Group has organised a free online conference (webinar), which will take place on 27 September at 16:00 hours, with the objective being to raise awareness of the problems associated with sulphur compounds and to highlight the key points regarding the management of waste water in the agrifood industry.

Taking part in the webinar will be Javier Donato, Director of SITRA, and José Antonio Mendoza, of the Research Institute for Industrial, Radiophysical and Environmental Safety (ISIRYM) of the Universitat Politécnica Valéncia (UPV).

The initiative, selected in the 2018 application requirements of the 2014-2020 National Programme for Rural Development, which is co-financed by the European Union, is designed to respond to a major challenge within the sector, namely the advanced treatment of the waste water generated in order to minimise pollution and, especially, the presence of sulphur-derived compounds. The project, which is still in the drafting phase, sets out to define the in-laboratory and pilot tests required to demonstrate new effective technologies to help combat these compounds.

The OXAL Operative Group is made up of leading companies from the water and agrifood sectors: ZINNAE, the Aragon-based water consortium; TAISI, the Aragon-based company dedicated to the manufacture of fruit preserves; and GRUPO CRA, a producer of grape concentrates and fresh grape juices. All of them, together with SITRA, are focused on the improvement of industrial processes and on meeting the challenges involved in the sustainable management of water in industry.
