Project Objectives

  • The construction and operation of pilot biobeds adapted to the environmental conditions and the farming practices used in Cyprus.
  • The selection of low cost substrates of agricultural origin that can be used as biobed filling biomixtures in Cyprus.
  • Evaluation of the filling mixtures regarding their degradation speed and their adsorbing ability in laboratory-scale and in small scale biobeds.
  • Installation and attenuation of pilot biobeds regarding their efficiency in the decontamination of liquid agricultural wastes.
