The aim of the project is to send a young student from Monaco to the Concordia Antarctic Research Station from mid-November 2020 to the end of January 2021. This period is framed from September 2020 to July 2021 by preliminary training phases.

Its mission is to work on the black water treatment approach which is not yet implemented at the Research Station. The aim is to optimise the grey water recycling technology at the Station and to initiate the treatment and recycling of black water.

This mission is also being followed by the Institut Paul-Emile Victor and the European Space Agency (ESA), which are sharing their knowledge of the methods already under study.

His work on the Antarctic base will be followed by Monegasque and French schools via audiovisual communication.
