Abstract

The project FIT4REUSE will provide safe, sustainable, and accepted ways of water supply for the Mediterranean basin by exploiting non-conventional water resources. Reclaimed water and desalinated water can contribute to compensate the gap between agricultural water demand and supply and provide consistently high-quality water throughout the year. FIT4REUSE will focus on innovative, sustainable, and safe treatment technologies, and on the use of reclaimed water and desalinated water in agriculture and for aquifer recharge. Also, specific methodological and assessment tools framework will be created to meet the project objectives. The report “Data collection protocol and matrix” details the key data and information required to analyse the sustainability impacts (environmental, social, and economic) of different non-conventional water reuse systems in FIT4REUSE project. The sustainability assessment will be conducted through the application of different methodologies: life cycle thinking (LCT) methods, such as life cycle assessment (LCA), social life cycle assessment (S-LCA) and life cycle costing (LCC); and cost-benefit analysis (CBA). Those analysis will be carried out over 4 case studies, one per FIT4REUSE country where experiments are developed. This report is structured as follows: Chapter 1 provides the objectives of the work, while Chapter 2 offers the general method for data collection and analysis connected with the previous outcome of FIT4REUSE, deliverable 7.1. Chapter 3 details the data collection matrix and Chapter 4 drafts key information regarding the case studies technologies and locations where it is expected to apply the sustainability assessment methodology.
