11 Jan WATER-MINING Market & Policy Workshop. 7-8 February 2023, Brussels
The WATER-MINING project promotes a circular economy approach for water management and treatment. The project demonstrates new and energy-efficient ways to reclaim critical resources from seawater desalination, and urban and industrial wastewater treatment through six case studies developed across Europe. The project analyses current market conditions for circular (waste)water treatment, designs circular water treatment business models, and devises appropriate policy recommendations in the form of policy packages to integrate these value-added products into resource supply chains.
This first WATER-MINING Market & Policy Workshop is for stakeholders interested in business models and policy measures supporting innovative circular water technologies. The technological focus is on critical resources, including freshwater, nutrient minerals, biopolymers, energy, urban and industrial wastewater and seawater.
Circular business models, effective green funding and policy packages for the widespread dissemination of circular water technologies are the topics to be discussed.
The workshop offers an opportunity for networking with stakeholders from water, business and policy fields.
The event will take place on 7-8 February, at the Delegation of the Government of Catalonia to the European Union, Espai Catalunya Europa, Rue de la Loi 227, 1040, Etterbeek, Brussels, Belgium.
