WATER-MINING Market & Policy Workshop
The WATER-MINING project promotes a circular economy approach to water management and treatment. The project demonstrates, through six case studies developed across Europe, new and energy-efficient ways to reclaim critical resources from seawater desalination, and urban and industrial wastewater treatment. To successfully integrate these value-added products into resource supply chains, 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.
This first WATER-MINING Market & Policy Workshop is designed for stakeholders interested in business models and policy measures supporting innovative circular water technologies. In terms of technology, the focus is on the recovery of critical resources, including freshwater, nutrient minerals, biopolymers, and energy, from urban and industrial wastewater, as well as seawater. Subjects to be discussed: circular business models, effective green funding and policy packages for the widespread dissemination of circular water technologies in Europe. The workshop offers a prime opportunity for networking with stakeholders from water, business and policy fields.
The event will take place on the 7th and 8th of February 2023, at the Delegation of the Government of Catalonia to the European Union, Espai Catalunya Europa, Rue de la Loi 2271040, Etterbeek, Brussels, Belgium.
