LIFE Matrix is a European project co-funded by the LIFE Programme that aims to demonstrate the technical, environmental and health feasibility of a Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) using reclaimed water in the Costa del Sol.
Using reclaimed water, the solution to water stress
Droughts have become more frequent in the EU. One third of the EU territory experiences water stress, and it is particularly intense in regions with seasonal demands that compromise the availability of natural water resources.
The LIFE Matrix project aims to demonstrate the technical, environmental and health feasibility of a Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) system using reclaimed water, treated wastewater subjected to complementary treatment processes for reuse.
