Emerging pollutants (CEs) that, through urban wastewater and effluents from Wastewater Treatment Stations (EDARs), reach aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems have negative effects on eco-system services. LIFE CLEAN UP aims to improve water purification with effective and environmentally friendly technology to obtain CEs-free clean waters. Through the LIFE16 ENV/ES/000169 project called “Validation of adsorbent materials and advanced oxidation techniques to remove emerging pollutants in treated wastewater” which begins its activity in October 2017 and will be developed until October 2020. This project has a budget of 1,492,512 euros, of which the European Union has co-financed with 895,506
