Project Ô is working to promote the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were announced by the United Nations (UN), and 193 countries across the world pledged to act. The SDGs provide a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. Eliminating poverty and inequality, preventing biodiversity loss and providing all with clean water are some of the issues being tackled. These goals are designed to align global actions to benefit us all.

Project Ô is contributing to three Sustainable Development Goals:

The UN forecast that by 2030, the world could face a deficit in water supply. Improving water management is a vital step towards creating a more reliable water supply. Project Ô develops water management and treatment technologies. They work in harmony with current systems and improve technical and economic success. The combination of innovative treatment technologies with two digital platforms will improve water management for communities in Europe and beyond.

  • Increasing the opportunity to reuse water

  • Creating new business opportunities to trade water and resources

  • Using less operating energy when treating water


Project Ô has developed circular water technologies at four installation sites in Croatia, Israel, Italy, and Spain. In this issue, we focus on the installation site in the Puglia region in southern Italy.


Some freshwater sources can no longer be used. This can be due to contamination and the water source being too great a distance from existing water treatment plants for processing.

Overexploited and now abandoned wells in the Puglia region of Italy present this challenge. They have been contaminated with seawater and certain microorganisms, but are too remote to be treated by existing water treatment plants.

Project Ô has developed a water filtration technology module to treat contaminated water. It operates independently of a water treatment plant and can be used directly at the water source, aiding the sustainable recovery of an untapped water resource.
