How do you work together with innovative solutions to get a circular water system with resource management which is accepted by all?  

With growing demand for resources and larger impact of our footprints, the need for circularity within our value chains is bigger than ever. This means that we need to make better use of our waste streams. But how do we design such a circular system, including all the parties that are involved throughout the chain? In this online session we delve into the issue with case studies on nutrient recovery, polymer production from wastewater and desalination and reuse of brine. We will discuss the ambitious intentions of a large EU program and how we tackle the challenges.
