Although we have worked on many projects in recent years, we would like to highlight the following:

Simulation of nitrate washing due to agricultural practices

We carried out a hydrogeological, agronomic and soil characterization in the Ebro river and main tributaries in Navarra, from which we developed a model capable of simulating the flow of nitrates to the aquifer and river waters. The objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of the measures taken to comply with the Nitrate Framework Directive in the region. LIFE NITRATES Project (GANASA, 2012-2014).

Effective water management for productive agriculture in Oman

Water & Life Llc (2013-2017) is an Omani Project aimed at developing a highly productive agriculture in Oman, taking into account the limitation in water resources. The role of Amaltea is to design and implement a real-time management system, based on sensors, of the quantity and quality of groundwater available for agriculture in hydroponic greenhouses and other agricultural uses.


Project within the IMPACT program, led by ZETA AMALTEA and with the participation of other private and public entities of Aragon. The objective is the creation, implementation and validation of a computer tool that performs material balances, water and energy audits in companies of the agri-food sector.

European Project: Water Accounts System for the Guadiana

ZETA AMALTEA participates in the GuaSEEAW project (System of Economic and Environmental Accounts for Water in Guadiana River Basin) sponsored by the Environment DG of the European Commission, for the implementation of the SEEAW system in the Guadiana river basin.

We have also participated in:

  • Implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) in the Ebro Basin (Ministry of the Environment, General Directorate of Water, 2004-2006)
  • Preparation, implementation and publication of the measures to be taken in the Ebro river basin in response to the requirements of the WFD (in collaboration with INTECSA – INARSA, 2007-2012)
  • Compostilla Project. OXYCFB300. Geological Storage of CO2 (Compostilla Project). CO2 injection in the area of ​​technological development of “Hontomín” (Burgos).
  • Environmental Services related to the natural life of the Ebro River as it passes through Zaragoza. Study of aquatic microorganisms as bio-indicators of processes to self-purification (Confederación Hidrográfica del Ebro, 2011).
