The OBP is an innovative prototype platform in the domain of saline wastewater management aiming to promote resource efficiency and circular economy. The OBP is developed by National Technical University of Athens in the framework of ZERO BRINE project. The OBP aims to play a key role in replicating the paradigms generated in the framework of the ZERO BRINE project.
In the OBP, the brine streams generated by process industries as well as the raw materials (minerals) and the water streams used by these industries will be mapped together with the available technologies and waste heat streams. Possible interactions between the industries across the value chain will be identified.
In addition to the OBP, a web portal is created to access specific information in the domain of saline waste water management. A collaboration tool (forum) is embedded to the portal in order to facilitate communication between key stakeholders.
