26 May 2021 – 10am CET
As part of EU Green Week, we are hosting a press briefing focusing on how we can reduce pollution from industrial wastewater.
ZERO BRINE is active in four industrial sectors: textiles (Turkey); coal (Poland); desalination; (The Netherlands);and silica production (Spain). These pilot projects are developing innovative solutions to the impacts of harmful industrial wastewater, while also creating new economic opportunities. This is helping bring about a more circular economy for Europe, while also reducing the environmental impact of process industries and helping us get closer to zero pollution.
The event will include talks from: –
- Pavel Misiga (Head of Unit, DG RTD)
- Dimitris Xevgenos (Innovation Manager, ZERO BRINE)
- Dr. Selda Murat Hocaoglu (Research, TÜBİTAK)
- Panagiotis Balabanis (Head of Water Sector, DG RTD)
We will also take attendees on a digital journey of our pilot plant in Turkey, where we are using a combination of new and existing technology to reduce the impact of wastewater in the textile industry.
