Water Sustainable Process Industry 2050: Methods and tools

Reaching a water sustainable process industry in 2050: what are the new tools, methodologies, technology gaps and other sectors' needs? ChemWater, an FP7 project focusing on chemical process and water industries, will address these and other questions during a workshop on May 24 at the Hotel Silken Berlaymont in Brussels. The workshop is an official Green Week satellite event and open to all.

24 May 2012

The objective of the ChemWater project is to build a vision and a roadmap on sustainable water use in the chemical industry that could be applied to other sectors.

The results of this workshop will be used as a basis to be included in the European R&D Agenda, in programs like PPP’s, EIP, JPI, Horizon 2020, etc. This is your chance to bring forward your ideas for this research/innovation program!

The output of the ChemWater project will be directly linked to the European Innovation Partnership on Water, and will provide information to set the priorities for research and innovation in the Strategic Implementation Plan of the EIP and therefore the reference for future calls. The aim of the EIP on Water is to position Europe as the world leader in sustainable water management by boosting innovation.

ChemWater is a project funded by the European Commission under the seventh Framework Programme. It addresses a key pan-European concern: the efficient management of water in process industry. ChemWater intends to coordinate European strategies on sustainable materials, processes and emerging technologies development. The project started in May 2011 and ends in October 2013.

The European Technology Platform for chemistry, SusChem, and that for water, WssTP, are working together to identify the synergies between the chemical and water sectors to ensure a sustainable use and treatment of water in process industry.
