ENDETECH - Enzymatic decontamination technology

The global objective of the ENDETECH (ENzymatic DEcontamination TECHnology) program is to develop a technology which aims at eliminating persistent pharmaceutical pollutants in wastewaters originating from drug manufacturing sites, households, hospitals and animal farms, thanks to an innovative ENzymatic Decontamination TECHnology. The pharmaceutical pollutants targeted in priority during this project will be antibiotics, hormones & endocrine disruptors and anti-cancer drugs.

Six partners from four different countries will work closely for this 3-year project: c-LEcta and our Department at Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany), ChiralVision (The Netherlands), Da Volterra and the European Membrane Institute (France) and the Catalan Institute for Water Research (Spain).
