This work package refurbishes and upgrades innovative brine treatment pilot systems developed in previous EU- and national-funded projects, in view of ZERO BRINE objectives. We are developing 5 Brine Excellence Centers (BECs)– one main BEC in the Netherlands and four satellite BECs in Spain, Greece, Italy and Poland – that will serve as fully-equipped facilities where companies will be able to test the equipment with their real wastewater and be provided with customized, validated brine treatment solutions. Technology libraries are being developed – software tools integrated into a common platform. These will simulate the key technologies used in the treatment trains, providing therefore credible results of expected operational data, as well as economic feasibility.
