Camila Gutiérrez, a graduate in Chemical Engineering from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) and student of the Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Zaragoza (UNIZAR), has completed her final project by carrying out a life cycle analysis of an urban wastewater treatment plant based on a natural domestic wastewater treatment system.

The work, carried out under the tutelage of the Instituto Tecnológico de Canarias (ITC) and with the support of the MITIMAC team and partners (ULPGC) and the Mancomunidad del Sureste, has analysed the wastewater treatment plant installed in Santa Lucía de Tirajana, Gran Canaria, to check the potential of this type of facility in mitigation strategies for the effects of Climate Change.

The Natural Purification System of Santa Lucia was built in the framework of the DEPURANAT project by the Mancomunidad del Sureste de Gran Canaria and currently treats a pollutant load of about 500 population equivalents.

The work, which obtained a mark of 9.4 after its presentation to the tribunal at UNIZAR, was tutored by Gilberto Martel, from the ITC’s Water Department, and was supported by the ULPGC, leader of the MITIMAC project, which provided the necessary software tools for the development of the life cycle analysis.
