Innovation and publications

As a technology company, SUEZ maintains high activity in the field of R & D & i.

Innovation

As a result of our activity, we have participated in various European projects such as the following:

FP5-EESD2002-2005 FUMAPEX

Project in which we have participated as a partner and leader of the project for the prediction of urban air quality.


FP7-ENVIRONMENT 2008-2011 MEGAPOLI

We have participated as a partner and responsible for subprojects in the measurement of air quality in Mega-cities.


LIFE09 ENV / IT / 000082 2010-2014 EXPAH

With the theme of Air Quality: Population exposed to Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. We have participated as a project partner and responsible for air quality modeling.


LIFE18 PRE IT 003 VEG-GAP

Use of vegetation for urban air quality plans as project partner and responsible for estimating biogenic emissions


H2020-SESAR-2019-2 CREATE

Improved air traffic management and its impact on air quality. We took place as a project partner and responsible for assessing the air quality impact of aircraft emissions.


INEA / CEF / ICT / A2017 / 1566782 TRAFAIR

We participate as a stakeholder and hired by the consortium to support the development of air quality modeling and monitoring in the city of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). Regulation of traffic flows and improvement of air quality.


DEODORIZATION IN LAS DEHESAS, MADRID

We carried out deodorization at Las Dehesas biomethanization plant in Madrid using advanced biofiltration to improve air quality and reduce odors in the environment.

Publications

High scientific production linked to air quality and climate change

In recent years we have achieved a high scientific production related to air quality and climate change, associated with numerous publications in high-impact journals:
