In the framework of the ZERO BRINE project, DLR is providing pioneer work for the development of the circular economy into the waste water sector. The concept of circular economy represents a change of paradigm in comparison to current supply systems, which base on linear economy. According to this idea waste water streams are no longer considered as the end, but rather as a new start of the water supply chain as well as a source of valuable components such as salts and minerals.
