The project SS06020070 Use of biodegradable polyurethane foams for intensification of nitrification at wastewater treatment plants under the acronym NITRIPLAST is solved within the framework of the 6th public competition of the Environment for Life programme of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic in the years 2023 - 2025.

The aim of the project is to develop an innovative material based on polyurethane foams to serve as a carrier for nitrifying biomass in wastewater activation plants. The carrier material will be biodegradable over a period of months to help improve the nitrification efficiency of wastewater treatment plants especially during the winter months. The material will be the subject of functional sample and utility model and its application will be verified in practice by means of a validated technology. At the end of the project, we expect an improvement in nitrification efficiency of around 30 - 50% using this innovative material product in the form of a case study on a quarter and semi-operational scale with complete technological balances and ROI analysis.

The project is solved in a consortium of ASIO TECH, spol. s r.o., VŠCHT in Prague, Faculty of Environmental Technology (Institute of Water and Environmental Technology - Department of Water and Environmental Technology) and Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the CAS, v.v.i.
