Welcome to the first SaltGae Newsletter!

SaltGae project ( is an Innovation Action that received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 689785.

We hope Saltgae newsletters will serve as valuable communication and reliable information platform to reach a critical mass of know-how and leverage to amplify the impacts of SaltGae at EU and international level while raising awareness on the project results.

Enjoy your reading!


SaltGae will develop and demonstrate a techno-economically viable solution for the treatment of saline wastewater from Food & Beverage industry. SaltGae will be a case study to overcome the cross-cutting barriers to innovation identified in the European Innovation Partnerships (EIP) on Water. SaltGae will provide:


A techno-economically viable solution for the treatment of saline wastewaters and establish three DEMO sites for the real scale demonstration of sustainable and eco-innovative modular-based technology platform. DEMOs will be established in Slovenia (treatment of tannery WW) Italy (whey WW) and Israel (aquaculture WW).

An innovative platform for the mobilisation and networking of stakeholders from all the different sectors related to WWs, and for the dissemination of results with the aim of promoting paradigm shift in perception from ‘WW treatment’ to ‘resource valorisation’.


Join our Stakeholders Platform in September!

SaltGae's Demo site in Slovenia

Partner KOTO d.o.o. will upgrade the demonstration centre for algal treatment of waste water located in Ljubljana, Slovenia to be able to treat high organically polluted salty waste water. The SaltGae technology will be tested in real industrial environment. All stakeholders are welcome to visit the demonstration centre.
