This project aims to proof the applicability of a highly innovative and sustainability technology (UV LED system) for chemical-free and efficient water treatment (drinking water / wastewater) and a comparison with conventional treatment. Citizens, societies, agriculture and industries will increasingly need innovative solutions to meet the need of using water in a more efficient and effective way. Innovative thinking and smarter use of innovation, such as that of project InLEDapp, have the potential to bring new solutions quickly and efficiently to the market while responding to the needs of end users in urban, rural and industrial areas. The systems will be operated in the field including waterworks, community water supply systems, wastewater treatment facilities and industrial applications. The field test will be conducted in Japan and the results will include treatment performance and maintenance frequency. The research strength of each country will be matched in complementary and interdisciplinary manners, which will result in the synergy to develop future society with sustainable water use and management.
