Water circular economy solutions


“What do Trappist monks, a whisky distillery and water utilities have in common? How can water utilities and industries seamlessly exchange resources to future-proof their businesses? The answer lies in the Circular Economy.
The need for a Water Circular Economy has become more evident and urgent in 2020. Traditional, linear supply chains involving production, consumption and
disposal have become vulnerable. Climatic changes, commercial competition and environmental degradation are putting existing business models under strain.
While solving each of these challenges on their own is very difficult, what if we could help to solve all three problems at once? Developing local, robust and transparent markets for water-embedded resources, including water, energy and materials, can help to climate-proof the whole of European society.”
