Αfter the completion of the guided tour at the demonstration sites of HYDRO 1 and HYDRO 2 the Consortium celebrated for the very first time the biogas produced as a fuel for the garbage truck of the Municipality of Western Lesvos
The HYDROUSA Team is glad to see that the nature based and circular solutions are applied and help to promote a more sustainable and green future for the local communities of Lesvos island.
After asking ourselves what are the problems faced by water scarcity areas, we came up with answers with the same mind set of circular and nature-inspired technologies. We want to solve the water supply issue, the wastewater problem, the biodiversity and nutrient loss, the availability of jobs (mainly in the high touristic season), and the flush of difficulties that infrastructure has to deal with at the peak of the touristic season, resulting in the unsustainable water demand.
The circular economy is put into practice in the Municipality of West Lesvos, with the treated wastewater of Andissa being reused in irrigation and hydro-fertilization of crops and the biogas produced being used as fuel in a municipal waste collection vehicle!
The main objective of HYDROUSA is to offer a set of solutions for these problems that are easily adaptable and replicable to other possible circumstances around the world.With these in mind the Team is glad to see a progress in all these sectors.
