The New SPIRE AquaSPICE project is launched
The SPIRE AquaSPICE project kicked-off its activities on the 15 and 16 December 2020, bringing together a dynamic and large consortium of 28 partners, coordinated by the RWTH Aachen University.
The 42-month project is funded by the European Commission under the H2020 programme and focuses on advancing sustainability of process industries through digital and circular water use innovations.
AquaSPICE aims at materializing circular water use in European Process Industries, fostering awareness in resource-efficiency and delivering compact solutions for industrial applications. That challenging aim necessitates (i) fostering the industrial deployment of innovative water treatment and re-use technologies, (ii) closed-loop practices regarding water, energy and substances, (iii) a system for real-time monitoring, assessment and optimization of water (re-)use at different interconnected levels and (iv) an effective organisational, regulatory and business framework. AquaSPICE’s innovations will be tested in six 6 EU countries, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Slovenia and Romania, as well as Turkey.
Water Europe is excited to be on board of this new promising project. To check on the project’s updates, please click here.
