Media briefing: Reducing pollution from industrial wastewater

Media briefing: Reducing pollution from industrial wastewater 1600 900 ZERO BRINE

 26 May 2021 – 10:00-11:00 CET
Press Briefing + Public Livestream

As part of EU Green Week, we are hosting a press briefing focusing on how we can reduce the environmental impacts of industrial wastewater, helping Europe move closer towards zero pollution.

ZERO BRINE is active in four industrial sectors: textiles (Turkey); coal (Poland); desalination; (The Netherlands); and silica production (Spain). These pilot projects are developing innovative solutions to the impacts of harmful industrial wastewater, while also creating new economic opportunities. This is helping bring about a more circular economy for Europe, while also reducing the environmental impact of process industries and helping us get closer to zero pollution.

We will also take attendees on a digital journey of our pilot plant in Turkey, where we are using a combination of new and existing technology to reduce the impact of wastewater in the textile industry.
