The Schinias pilot is a hybrid application of ASR-Coastal and Freshmaker technologies of the subsurface water solutions. The site of Schinias is a coastal protected wetland linked to a typical coastal hydrogeological system of a Mediterranean region. Additionally, there are seasonal water shortage of the over-exploited coastal aquifer, as well as saline intrusion.
This pilot exploits a rather usual context: the alluvial aquifer in use by both the wetland and agriculture, is sitting on top of a karstic aquifer, discharging relatively good quality water straight to the sea. Thus, karstic water resource has been used, treated with novel pollution remediation techniques (Reverse Osmosis and Advanced Oxidation Methods) and recharged in the alluvial aquifer, stored and reused when necessary. The Schinias pilot examined different scenarios and establish optimal SWS schemes.
