19th December 2018. 3rd Workshop on Sustainable Electrochemical Technology organized by the E3TECH Network
Following the two previous successful events organized in Gargagno (https://rede3tech.org/2016/09/19/workshop-de-electrochemical-technologies/) and Barcelona (https://rede3tech.org/2017/10/19/2nd-workshop-on-new-bridges-for-a-new-knowledge-on-electrochemical-engineering/), the Spanish E3TECH Network of Excellence is going to organize its third Workshop on Sustainable Electrochemical Technology within the framework of the 25th ISE Topical Meeting, which will be held in Toledo (Spain) from May 12 to 15, 2019.
On this occasion, the workshop will be focused on the ability of the electrochemical technology to improve the sustainability in the modern society, giving chance to researchers in very different topics of electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering fields to contribute. The workshop will consist of two sessions: (i) a scientific one, in which the most recent results from the research carried out by the different groups will be presented; this will promote the preparation of a special issue in Chemosphere, aimed at publishing high quality manuscripts from presented works; (ii) a second session, in which a round table with companies will help to stress the points in which the collaboration in the topic of sustainability between academy and industry can be improved. Invited lectures from outstading researchers contributing to the Topical Meeting will also be included.
The sessions will be in parallel to those of the ISE Topical Meeting and no additional registration fee will be charged (it will be mandatory to be registered in the ISE Topical Meeting). After the Workshop, the general assembly of the E3TECH network will be held.
Contributions to this Workshop will not be included in the ISE Topical Meeting or in the book of abstracts since this is a satellite event, but a certificate from the E3TECH organizers will be available if needed. Contributions have to be submitted to the following email firstname.lastname@example.org (deadline: 15 January 2019)

14th Nov 2017. The project LIFE2ACID, Towards a sustainable use of metal resources in the galvanic industry is launched
The project has the participation as beneficiaries of two members of the E3TECH network, specifically the Environmental Technologies and Bioprocesses group of the University of Cantabria, and the Electrochemical and Corrosion Engineering group of the Polytechnic University of Valencia. The project is coordinated and led by the technology-based company APRIA Systems, based in Cantabria and specialized in the development of innovative electrochemical technologies for the industrial production sector.
LIFE2ACID aims to implement a new technology for the selective recovery of zinc and ferric chloride contained in spent pickling acids from galvanization processes. By means of the integration of membrane-assisted extraction and electrodeposition (MBSX-EW), the recovery and subsequent reuse of metals contained in depleted acids is possible, with a quality similar to that of materials obtained from primary sources.
The project will contribute to improving the sustainability of the galvanization process, promoting the concept of circular economy thanks to the transformation of waste into resources. Likewise, the project wants to contribute to improve the European environmental policy and legislation, looking for technology to be considered as a better technology available for the industrial sector of ferrous metal processing.
LIFE2ACID (LIFE16 ENV/ES/000242) has a duration of 42 months, a total budget of € 1,233,502, and a contribution from the European LIFE program of € 738,898. On November 13th, the project’s follow-up meeting was held at the University of Cantabria, with the participation of the partners and those responsible for the process of monitoring the progress of the project.
November 13, 2017. Follow-up meeting of the LIFE2ACID project at the University of Cantabria with the participation of APRIA Systems, UC, UPV, AIDIMME and those responsible for the follow-up process
