As part of the ZERO BRINE project, the University of Palermo is hosting an online training focusing on the recovery of valuable products from spent brines produced in water softening plants. Such a process, utilising the concept of the circular economy, enables the reduction of negative environmental impacts while also increasing economic potential.
Waste brines are rich with recoverable minerals
During the workshop we will present results obtained from the successful installation of a pilot-plant to recover Mg(OH)2 and Ca(OH)2 from the spent brine produced by the regeneration of ionic exchange resins at Evides Industriewater B.V., in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). The aim is to bring together brine owners and industries interested in finding new sources of minerals such as magnesium, together with technology providers and policy-makers.
