6 // 7 your partner in the water cyclecommitment to environmental protection,r&D and innovation and technologyEnvironmental protection isone of the top priorities ofACCIONA Agua on each one ofthe projects it undertakes.Theobject is to minimise the use ofresources and the quantity ofwaste generated.The Company’s strategy hingeson two concepts, sustainabilityand social wellbeing, togenerate wealth, improve theenvironment and fostersocial progress.In 2002, the EnvironmentalManagement System ofACCIONA Agua obtainedISO 14001 certification andin 2008, its Occupationalhealth and Safety System wasOhSAS certified. however, theCompany’s commitment farexceeds legal requirements andseeks to continuously improveits environmental protectionprocess and increase thelevel of awarenessamong employees.To do so,ACCIONA Aguafocuses its efforts on:Optimising the use ofnatural resources.Minimising the production ofhazardous waste.Achieving the properenvironmental managementstandards for the sewage,waste and by-productsgenerated during the watertreatment process.Organising employeetraining and awareness-raising campaigns.Conducting internal audits ofimprovements.As part of its environmentalprotection efforts, the Companyhas conducted inspections ofwaste and control systemsusing a specially trained teamwhich have yielded results inthe Molina de Segura project(Murcia, Spain). In this case, theuse of internal technologicalinnovation directed by r&D andInnovation played a decisiverole in each phase, contributingto its ultimate success.The ongoing support of ther&D and Innovation for allstages of the water cycle iswhat sets ACCIONA Aguaapart from its competitors.In the desalination sector,the Company is workingwith the latest membranemodel and new energyrecovery devices.The r&D departmentalso conducts ongoingresearch into new water-treatment techniques.Ther&D department providesfundamental technical supportand takes charge of the firststeps in designing large-scaledesalination plants.The Company’s r&D andInnovation activities seek torespond to greater demandfor water treatment andincreasingly scarce resources.ACCIONA’s participation inSpanish and internationalresearch projects, alongsideuniversities and publicresearch centers, makesit a technological front-runner and consolidates itsopposition as sector leader.Its r&D work has led toimportant advances such as:A v ariation on modified uCT(university of CapeTown)process, aimed primarilyat reducing sludge andconsuming less oxygen;A patent f or a ground-breaking process for biomass,bringing greater designflexibility, space savings,and easier functioning andcontrol.research into the effectsof potentially dangeroussubstances (e.g. hormonesand medicines) inwastewater destinedfor reuse.The r&D work carried outhas borne its fruits, including16 patents for desalination,membrane bioreactors andwater reuse.The following arejust a few examples:ELF A (Treatment).SEPAFLOC (Desalination /Pre-treatment).BIOFILPAS (Drinkingwater).MEMPACK (wastewater).OPTIMIZACIONENErGÉTICA SPLIT CIEGOS(Desalination).A CTIDAFF / uLTrAFLOT(Desalination).ACCIONA Agua has a highlyqualified staff with more thanthirty years of experienceapplying r&D and Innovationto water treatment and theuse of membranes, fromthe most basic laboratorytechniques to pilot plants onan industrial scale.C
