Fifty students from the 5th and 6th grade of the Raíña Fabiola school in Santiago de Compostela learned about the LIFE SEACAN project.

Iván Rodríguez, the project’s responsible, was in charge of presenting the context of the project in the Rías Baixas of Galicia, explaining the current situation of the canning industry, as well as the objectives and results that are intended to be achieved with this European project. The children were astonished with the explanation of the amount of water needed to make a tin can. They showed a great interest answering the questions asked. Finally the granular sludge technology and how these granules are formed were visually explained.

LIFE SEACAN financed by the European Commission through its LIFE14 program, lasting three and a half years, has a total budget of € 1.8 million. It is led by Cetaqua and has the participation as partners of the University of Santiago de Compostela and the University of Vigo.
