Recovering resources from industrial wastewater

Press this link to see the recording of the session.

Learn the latest technological innovations in industrial wastewater circularity as our panellists discuss projects at the forefront of recovering valuable resources from industry brines. Will ‘mining’ resources from industrial brine be key for Europe’s economic competitiveness? Join us to gain a new perspective of how opportunities in brine management could also be a contender for building climate resilience more globally.

Professor and Vice-President
University of Thessaly (Greece) and Water Europe (Belgium)
Chrysi Laspidou is a Professor at the Civil Engineering Department, University of Thessaly in Greece. Her research interests include resource Nexus and water informatics, mathematical modeling and simulation of physical-chemical and biological processes that take place in natural aquatic systems and other ecosystems, as well as urban water issues, resource depletion and sustainability, virtual water and water-carbon-ecological footprint. She has conducted research in many different aspects of water, from performing mathematical modeling of aquatic system processes to computational biology relevant to ecosystem function, to the socio-economic aspects of water use and water resource management. She is involved in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) projects that are mainly on innovative multisensors and/or biosensors, smart urban water management, smart cities and ICT for improving ecosystem function and quality. She has recently been elected the Vice-President of Research and Technology at Water Europe, while she is also a member of the Steering Committee of the Water-Energy-Food Nexus Knowledge Action Network at Future Earth. She has published over 60 articles in scientific journals and conference proceedings and is actively involved either as a Principal Investigator, or as a Coordinator in research projects funded by the European Commission, or national sources.
