Aguambiente is developing new materials in NUMASTA project in collaboration with Indemat, CARTIF y la UVa
Aguambiente is working on a new project which is going to develop new materials for water treatment. Under the name of NUMASTA, Aguambiente and Indemat collaborate with Technology Center CARTIF and University of Valladolid.
Aguambiente and Indemat are always innovating and opening up to new markets. At this time, the goal is to develop new materials which improve the mechanical and thermal performance of the equipment used in industrial water treatment. These materials make equipment more environmental-friendly due to their higher durability, their lower weight, the less use of raw materials and the incorporation of waste from production processes in the formulation of materials.
NUMASTA has been funded with 458,844.83 € (71% of the approved budget) from the European Regional Development Fund through the Program RETOS COLABORACIÓN 2016 of the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness whose thematic objective is “Promoting technological development, Innovation and quality research”.
The target of NUMASTA is in accordance with the goals planned for Horizon 2020 within the Social Challenge 5 on climate change and the efficiency of resources and raw materials. The aim is to increase the application of R & D in industrial processes and in the development of cleaner products, to reduce energy consumption and emissions to the atmosphere, water and soil.
