intelligent Water Treatment Technologies for water preservation combined with simultaneous energy production and material recovery in energy intensive industries

Project description

Smart solutions for energy- and water-intensive industries

In the past, industrial infrastructures were developed within a context of unconstrained water resource availability. This is no longer the case. Unsustainable uses of water resources and population dynamics along with climate change affect this critical resource, which is becoming scarce. The EU-funded intelWATT project will develop innovative, cost-efficient, smart separation technologies applied in energy- and water-intensive industries. Three case studies in electricity production, mining and electroplating facilities will demonstrate water preservation along with energy production and material recovery. The proposed solutions will also target zero liquid discharge while implementing maximum water reuse. For instance, the project aims to recover up to 75 % of chromium and copper and 50 % of nickel, present in effluents, while preserving 65 % of fresh water for reuse.
