CYANOWATER project achieved breakthrough results and filled research gaps in (a) Development of advanced analytical methods for emerging cyanotoxins (CTs) and for simultaneous analysis of different groups of CTs, (b) Identification of the toxin-producing cyanobacteria species in freshwater bodies and (c) Development of novel advanced oxidation processes based on photocatalysis of semiconducting metal oxides (TiO2, POM) for the detoxification of water contaminated with CTs.

The strong ties and close collaboration of the CYANOWATER research team with leading research partners and water supply companies have enabled the transfer of technology and direct and strong beneficial effects for the international research community involved in this field, but also significant societal and economic impacts at a national, European and international level. Budget: 315K€.

Project coordinator: Dr. A. Hiskia.
