Project Title
Molecular, 0-emissions, Low-enthalpy, Close-Loop HOlistic
Recovery Approach for a Sustainable and Eco-Efficient
Industrial Water Recycling System
Project
acronym
MORA-SRS
NMP Priority
FP7-NMP-2011-LARGE-5; NMP.2011.3.4-1 – Eco-efficient Management of
Industrial Water;
Scope
MORA-SRS is a Collaborative Project (IP) intended fully develop
and design –building up from the already existing and running
small scale pilot system in a electroplating facility in Spain- a
holistic and sustainable industrial waters’ recycling system
producing pure water out of the discharge flow of any industry
through an innovative and advanced molecular separation system
which avoids the use of any kind of filters, membranes and
aggressive chemical products.
MORA-SRS will also develop to a full-scale and cross-sectoral
application its innovative, eco-efficient, closed-loop and integrated
water recycling and pure water production system by using the
low-enthalpy energy emissions present at any industry facility
thus resulting in an integrated and 0-emissions system.

Objectives
The project will target and address:

Designing, implementing and testing large-scale and
cross-sectoral water recovery and recycling system
able to fully recuperate al raw materials mixed in the
downstream industrial water thus achieving a full and
complete “recycling” performance instead of the
current “neutralizing” principle.

Designing, implementing and testing an integrated
approach towards optimised process development
and design that will allow a general (heat, solvents,
raw materials, by-products) waste minimization,
treatment and recycling coupled with the use of
internal and already-existing low-enthalpy energy
sources (emissions) within the industrial processes.

Investigating novel nanomaterials and energyefficient technologies to improve cost-efficiency,
equipment endurance while reducing investment
needed thus improving economics of MORA-SRS for
end-users.

Conducting fundamental research to achieve novel
industrial water treatment cycles reproducing the
natural water cycle within MORA-SRS.

• Conducting fundamental research to fully develop
and test a water treatment system able to manage
evaporation and condensation processes at very low
temperatures
and
with
continuous
pressureequilibrium processes.

Generating a set of quantum-leap changes in the
industrial water management equipments and
technologies themselves and also by means of a
radical change in the overall QoW output performance
of the models used to-date.

Actively involve end-users through consortium
membership to account for MORA-SRS validation
under real process conditions in a cross-sectoral
framework once the already existing and running
small scale pilot system in a electroplating facility in
Spain has been fully expanded in terms of scalability
and adaptability to different industrial processes

Designing and implementing a QoW assessment
framework, including the tools for monitoring and
measurement of QoW, including activity-based, enduser, final utilization automatic inference methods
and the interfaces for decision making.

Tackling the emergent biological pollution risk issues
once “pure water” status has been achieved and prior
to water discharge (holistic approach)..

Developing management architecture and systems to
allow self-organising and self-healing operations,
cooperative network composition, service support,
and portability across multiple industrial sectors and
business domains.
