Advancing Sustainability of Process Industries through Digital and Circular Water Use Innovations
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 the agreement No 958396. AquaSPICE has a total duration of 3.5 years (01/12/2020-31/05/2024).
The AquaSPICE overall goal is the development and validation of water efficiency management and optimization methodologies, technologies and tools that will carry process industries forward to a near-zero water footprint target with minimum freshwater consumption and water-borne emissions. This is pursued through a set of scientific and technical objectives, motivated by real industrial needs analysed through six case studies and a set of impact-related objectives.
