The main objectives of LIFE ALCHEMIA project are:

  • To demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of  bed filters  that will be optimized to  remove radioactivity from water and to minimize the generation of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM)  exceeding the exemption level.
  •  3 pilot plants in Spain and 1 pilot plant in Estonia  will be operated with different strategies to prevent NORM generation.
  • To  replicate  LIFE ALCHEMIA solutions in facilities of other 5 European countries (Italy, Poland and Finland, among others).
  • To promote the  transferability  to other facilities and EU members.
  • To encourage the active involvement of interested parties in the implementation of the  Directive 2013/51/Euratom  for minimising the environmental impact of radionuclides treatment in water provision services.
