About the Project AquaSPICE aims at materializing circular water use in European Process Industries, fostering awareness in resource-efficiency and delivering compact solutions for industrial applications. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 958396 and will receive a total amount up to 11,055,248 euros. AquaSPICE has a total duration of 4 years (01/12/2020-31/11/2024).

WHY?

20% of all fresh water consumption globally is used by industry and this share is increased to 50% in industrialized countries. The industrial sector is also a major water polluter, as only up to 60% of industrial wastewater receives treatment before being disposed of into the environment.

WHAT?

AquaSPICE’s goal is the development and validation of water efficiency management and optimization methodologies, technologies and tools that will carry process industries to a near-zero water footprint target with minimum freshwater consumption and water-borne emissions.

HOW?

Through the development and validation of water efficiency management and optimization methodologies, technologies and tools; the creation of a water-specific cyber-physical system; and the definition of effective methodological, regulatory and business framework.
