ZERO BRINE Co-Design Workshop

The 1st Stakeholder Consultation event took place on 12 March 2018 at TU Delft, Netherlands to advance new circular economy business models.

Jumpstarting Pilot Projects

The four pilot plants in the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Turkey are preparing  to test their equipment on bench scale and membrane regeneration and characterization studies.

Brine Excellence Centres (BECs)

BECs in Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Poland and Spain to test brine treatment technologies are progressing. For example, the Greek BEC Technological and Cultural Park of Attica is getting ready to start the first experiments.

Communicating ZERO BRINE

The website was launched in February 2018. And the JIQ Magazine on climate and sustainability published an article about ZERO BRINE.

ZERO BRINE @ Main Conferences

The ZERO BRINE project was presented at EIP Water 2017 by Dimitris Xevgenos (SEALEAU), Ecomondo by Maurizio Bevacqua (UNIPA) and the International Water Summit 2018 by Vanessa Wabitsch (REVOLVE).
Coordinated by TU DELFT, the innovation project ZERO BRINE advances circular economy business model solutions to reduce industrial saline wastewater streams by recovering and reusing the minerals and water from the brine in other industries. ZERO BRINE is funded by the European Union’s H2020 Research and Innovation Program and includes 22 partners from research institutes, SMEs, construction companies, and end-users from 10 countries across Europe.
