The general objective of SOS-ACQUA is to exploit low-cost nanotechnology solutions to achieve a mobile system of purification and co-generation/storage of energy, in order to meet the needs of small communities such as the base of a military camp or isolated areas affected by natural disasters in the civil sector. The proposed technological solution is a “batch” system consisting of two interconnected units. The FILTER unit purifies water by filtration and conserves the water that is then fed into the CELL unit, where the oxidative degradation of pollutants and the production of hydrogen takes place.
