The project aims to integrate novel technological and digital developments into the existing industrial wastewater treatment systems for recovery and recycling of freshwater, energy and solutes. The overall objective is to achieve long-term circular economy of EU industry via recycling and reusing resources from industrial water and wastewater streams.

Sixteen partners form eight European member states form a multidisciplinary consortium, which includes large enterprises, academia and research & technology organisations. Targeting steel, pulp, paper, and chemical industries, the project aligns with P4Planet’s objectives, paving the way for circular processes and EU climate neutrality by 2050.
