Technical feasibility


SECTION I: Testing



Has the R & D result been tested?






The following question is replied according to the reply in question 1


If yes



In what mode has the result been tested?

•             Prototype

•             Pilot Application

•             Alpha/BETA testing


Pilot application




1b. Please describe and discuss the testing results
The first reactor was fed with wastewater from the primary effluent and then irradiated with low-frequency ultrasonic waves. Afterwards, the liquid was conveyed to the second reactor where ozonisation was performed. Then, the liquid was analysed according to traditional parameters of waters with an evident abatement of detergents and of bacterial loads with respect to the ozonisation process alone.


If no:



Describe what type of testing the R&D result needs.



1d. What is the time needed for testing?
1e. What is the cost needed for testing?



SECTION 2: Current Stage of Development



To what extent does the development team have technical resources for supporting the production of a new product? (Researchers, human resources, hardware, etc. )
They need human resources and researchers to test the idea and then start production.




What are the technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment, if needed?
The possibility to test the idea in different situations with wastewater having different bacteria and other elements that have to be removed.




What additional technical resources are needed for the production of this new product?
Also in this case, more researchers and human resources



Overall assessment of the current stage of technical development.




SECTION 3: Deployment


Define the demands for large scale production in terms of
  • Materials
Mechanical materials




  • technologies, tools, machineries
Solidifier, reactor, pumps, ozonisers




  • Staff effort
Staff to perform industrial and commercial tasks






SECTION 4: Overall Assessment



What is your overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?
It is ready to be used
