Scan2DBP project funding for drinking water monitoring and prediction of toxic compounds

The Scan2DBP project, led by the researcher from the ICRA Water Quality area, María José Farré, ¨A scanning dissolved organic matter fingerprint tool to predict disinfection byproduct formation during water treatment¨, has been funded within the "proofs of concept" call in the framework of the state R+D+i program aimed at the challenges of society, from state plan for scientific and technical research and innovation 2017-2020.

The focus of the Scan2DBP project is monitoring drinking water to predict toxic compounds that can be formed during chemical disinfection of water (disinfection by-products, DBPs). The opportunity to use this technology as an early warning tool will also be explored.
