IBAIA is a new initiative to tackle the increased demand for improved water quality monitoring solutions.

The project aims to develop four novel optimally functionalized sensor modules for detecting microplastics, organic pollutants, nutrient salts, and heavy metals, as well as measuring salinity and physico-chemical parameters in the water environment. These four sensors will be designed and packaged into a modular advanced multi-sensing system that will be tested at the end of the project in real-world in situ conditions for accidental water pollution and phytoremediation wastewater treatment.

The IBAIA multi-sensing system will offer a one-size-fits-all solution for many end users, and provide technological innovation to help achieve the actions outlined in the European Green Deal.
