The ULTIMATE Water project aims to create economic value and increase sustainability by valorising resources within the water cycleWastewater is not only a reusable resource but also a carrier for energy and components that can be extracted, treated, stored, and reused. Drawing on “Water Smart Industrial Symbiosis” (WSIS) we promote wastewater recycling in various industrial settings. We have selected nine large-scale demonstration cases from the four most important industrial sectors in Europe:

  • Agro-food processing
  • Heavy chemical / petrochemical
  • Beverages
  • Biotech industry

Turning industrial wastewater into a resource, the project will provide to:

  • Recover, refine and reuse wastewater
  • Extract and exploit energy
  • Extract and exploit materials

ULTIMATE project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N° 869318. Thiis project runs from 1 June 2020 – 30 May 2024 (4 years).
