Interested in saving energy and recovering resources from wastewater in the mining industry?

Saline waste waters are a concern for many industries. The coal mining industry in Poland is a case in point: it discharges around 4 million tonnes of sodium chloride into rivers every year. ZERO BRINE, a 4-year Innovation Action (IA) financed by Horizon2020, is turning this problematic waste into a source of income by recovering all materials such as water, salts, and minerals for reuse in industries, while curbing energy use.

In the context of the 2019 International Circular Week, stakeholders of the ZERO BRINE project will organise a site visit for journalists, industry experts, academics, and policy-makers to see the technology in practice. This will enable visitors to learn the latest results and socio-environmental benefits.
