Interview D. Lossifidis and G.A. van den Berg - Wastewater from the juice industry serving as a source of raw materials
Innovatie & Valorisatie
“The pilot plant at a Greek fruit juice producer shows that intelligent wastewater treatment not only conserves water as a resource, but also recovers valuable wastewater constituents.
Wastewater generated by the industrial companies throughout the world is not only a reusable resource in itself: it often contains valuable components that can be extracted purified and marketed. This is the approach taken by the ULTIMATE project. launched in mid-2020. The European Union is funding the international project for four years as part of its Horizon 2020 research and development program. ULTIMATE is backed by 27 partners from twelve countries: water companies, industrial stakeholders, specialized small and medium-sized companies, research institutes, technology platforms, municipalities, and regional authorities. The initiative is led and coordinated by the Dutch KWR Water Research Institute.”
