KWR in the news G.A. van den Berg - EU greenlights large demo projects on waste water mining and smart water
Innovatie & Valorisatie
“The European Commission has greenlighted two large international public-private consortia to build demonstration plants to showcase new opportunities to recover valuable resources from waste water and to create smart linkages between the water sector and other industrial sectors.
Both EU Horizon 2020 water research projects are led by Dutch research institutes. Delft University of Technology will coordinate the Water mining project and KWR will do the same for the Ultimate project.
The European Commission has announced a grant of 17 million euro for the Water Mining project that can now start in September. The project includes the building of demonstration plants in Cyprus, Spain, Portugal, Italy and The Netherlands, to show novel efficient ways to reclaim nutrients, minerals, energy and water from industrial and urban wastewater and seawater. The public-private consortium consists of 38 public and private partners and 4 linked third parties in 12 countries.”
