Research in collaboration with the University of Padua
Thanks to its collaboration with the University of Padova and the close connection with the scientific research world, Spinoff srl offers innovative solutions in the integrated waste treatment and energetic valorization of waste (the Aquanova system), in the phytoremediation of landfill leachate with energy crops and in the environmental sustainability of landfills(S.AN.A ® landfill).
AQUANOVA is a system to treat municipal wastewater and the organic fraction of solid waste. It is based on source separation of flows and on a system that allows water saving, water reuse and energy recovery.
Residential areas not connected to the sewage, mountain huts, isolated country houses, developing countries with no water and sewage network, islands, coastal areas and highly touristy environments, camping sites.
We apply the phyto-treatment to different wastewaters, including landfill leachate, using oleaginous crops (soybean, sunflower, rapeseed). The seeds obtained from the plants are then tested as a feedstock for biodiesel production.
The "S.AN.A.® landfill" optimizes biological processes that develop in the waste body, maximizing the biogas production potential on one hand and minimizing uncontrolled emissions and long-term impacts on the other.
