Online Event – Zoom Live Event

Towards Industrial Symbiosis

Europe is trying to move towards a circular economy, and circular business models where high-quality resources are recovered and reused from process water, offer a solution. As an emerging market, reclaimed minerals are interesting for industries that want to reduce their costs and work more sustainably.

For this purpose, an online training session has been organised by Institute for Sustainable Process Technology on 3 December 2020 (13:00-16:00 CET). This training will be held for company personnel looking to build symbiotic brine relationships and circular business opportunities.

Preliminary Agenda
  • 13:00 – 13:15 – Welcome and introductions
  • 13:15 – 13:40 – Capacity building
    • Circular economy
    • Industrial symbiosis = circular economy?
    • Guest speaker 1: G. Korevaar (TU Delft)
    • Guest speaker 2: J.W. Mulder (Evides Industriewater)
  • 13:40 – 14:00 – Zero Brine Project
    • Project description
    • Project results
  • 14:00 – 14:10 – Online coffee break
  • 14:10 – 15:10 – Online Brine Platform
    • Tutorial
  • 15:10 – 15:25 – Online coffee break
  • 15:25 – 15:45 – Invited companies symbiosis prospects
  • 15:45 – 16:00 – Questionnaire and Wrap-up
For Companies interested in:
  • Water scarcity
  • Waste disposal and reuse
  • Critical raw materials
Join us to discuss:
  • Circular Economy
  • Industrial symbiosis
  • ZERO BRINE approach
  • Online Brine Platform

The main tool used in both training sessions is the Online Brine Platform (OBP). The OBP is an active web service which aims to promote the flow of secondary raw materials by linking brine/salt owners with the mineral/water users and technology and waste heat providers. Thus, industries can be mapped and possible matches among the industries and across the value chain can be identified.

From waste to resource: Redesigning the value and supply chain of water and minerals in process industries, Zaragoza, Spain

From waste to resource: Redesigning the value and supply chain of water and minerals in process industries, Zaragoza, Spain 2048 1024 ZERO BRINE

Process industries are a major source of brine – complex saline-impaired effluents that are a serious threat to the environment and costly for companies to manage. Yet brine consists of many resources such as minerals, salts, and metals and water. During this workshop, the EU innovation project ZERO BRINE, coordinated by TU Delft, demonstrates the circular economy solution for the brine generated by industries recovering high quality water, salts, minerals, metals, and heat for reuse in industrial applications. Learn about the latest results of the ZERO BRINE pilot plants in the water, textile, coal and chemical industry across Europe and how this innovative technology is applicable and scalable to a broad range of industries. Discover the economic opportunities by closing the loop and lessening the environmental impacts of production.

Join us for the ZERO BRINE Workshop!

This workshop is held in the context of the EIP Water Conference 2019, in Zaragoza, Spain and addresses water re-use and brine stream valorization and aims at matching brine producers with users of regenerated minerals. The workshop also presents an online platform that facilitates these match-ups.

Interested in energy savings and recovering resources from wastewater in the mining industry?

Saline waste waters are a concern of many industries. The coal mining industry in Poland is a case in point: discharging around 4 millions tons of sodium chloride into rivers every year. ZERO BRINE is turning this problematic waste into a source of income by recovering all materials such as water, salts, and minerals for reuse in industries while curbing energy use.

During the site visit, journalists, industry experts, academics, and policy-makers are invited to see the technology and to learn the latest results and benefits for the environment, society and business, thus advancing the triple bottom-line of sustainability.

Są Państwo zainteresowani zmniejszeniem zużycia energii i odzyskiwaniem surowców z wód kopalnianych?

Zasolone wody odpadowe są problemem wielu gałęzi przemysłu, a szczególnie górnictwa: corocznie w Polsce do rzek trafia około 4 milionów ton soli, pochodzącej głównie z kopalni węgla kamiennego. ZERO BRINE zmienia problem w źródło dochodu poprzez odzysk cennych materiałów z wód zasolonych: wody demineralizowanej, soli oraz minerałów możliwych do użycia przez inne gałęzie przemysłu przy jednoczesnym zmniejszeniu zużycia energii.

Zapraszamy dziennikarzy, ekspertów, naukowców i pracowników rządowych do wizyty i poznania najnowszych wyników i korzyści dla środowiska, społeczeństwa i biznesu.
