    CYANOWATER project aims in filling research gaps and achieving breakthrough results in (a) Development of advanced analytical methods for emerging cyanotoxins (CTs) and for simultaneous analysis of different groups of CTs, (b) Identification of the toxin-producing cyanobacteria species in freshwater bodies and (c) Development of novel advanced oxidation processes for the detoxification of water contaminated with CTs.

    The strong ties and close collaboration of the CYANOWATER research team with leading research partners and water supply companies will permit technology transfer and direct and strong beneficial impacts for the international research community involved in this field but also important societal and economic impacts at a national, European and international level.

    Aim and Objectives

    The main aim of the CYANOWATER project is to fill current research gaps in the areas of cyanotoxin analysis in environmental samples, the presence of toxin producing cyanobacteria and their cyanotoxins in freshwater ecosystems and advanced methods of water treatment for cyanotoxins removal. The expected results of the project will considerably benefit the international scientific community in this field of research:

    • Advanced methods of analysis that will be sensitive, accurate, and fast and also target many toxins of different groups in “one run” will enhance the capabilities of researchers as well as water and public health authorities to better assess and control the associated risks.
    • Investigations for the presence of cyanotoxins and the producing cyanobacterial species in freshwater ecosystems that were never studied before, will contribute to a better understanding of the behavior of these microorganisms, their tendency to invade or adapt to new environments with the concomitant release of toxins, some of them being new and emerging in the European region.
    • Studies on advanced oxidation processes for the detoxification of water contaminated with cyanotoxins will provide further effective and efficient tools for water utilities and authorities to eliminate public health risks associated with the consumption of cyanotoxins.

    Another secondary objective of the Nanomaterial Based Catalytic - Photocatalytic Processes and Environmental Analysis Laboratory (NCPP-EAL) is to keep in the edge of this field of research at an international level. NCPP-EAL is the first research laboratory in Greece to be involved in cyanotoxins research since 2005 and currently the only research group in Greece in the field with significant contributions through published papers and collaborations in Greece, Europe and USA. NCPP-EAL is planning to establish itself as a national reference laboratory for cyanotoxin analysis, by extending its scope of accreditation (ISO 17025) as well as a national focal point for cyanotoxins research.

    In order to achieve the aims and objectives of the Cyanowater project, research tasks are split into four distinct Work Packages (WPs) that are interconnected and interrelated as shown below.
