Water Solutions #2 – Reuse, Recycle & Recover


In the Water Solutions webinars, we take a deep dive into the four subthemes for the Amsterdam International Water Week in November. Together with scientist, innovators, and experts from cities, utilities, industry and agriculture we bring new perspectives and insights to the table. This second webinar focus on Reuse, Recycle and Recover. Expect good practices on water efficiency and wastewater reuse and an in-depth dialogue on how we need to govern, finance and legislate this transition.

Current progression around waste treatment, reclaim, reuse and recycling of resources has paved the groundwork to implement resource recovery ideas. Pharmaceutical, other chemical waste disposal, bacteriological pollution and virus transmission, especially in recent COVID-19 times, has unmasked the flaws in existing water circulation and distribution systems. Regarding the increasing droughts the need for reclaiming and recycling of wastewater is getting more and more important.

Zero Brine  

Is a four-year Innovation Action (IA) financed by the European Commission and coordinated by TU Delft. Aiming to ‘close the loop’ and improve the environmental impact of industrial production, the goal of Zero Brine is to prove that minerals, such as magnesium and clean water, can be recovered from industrial processes to then be reused in other industries. It is a circular economy approach based on the recovery of resources from industrial wastewater. 


The second largest beer brewery in the world, Heineken announced its water ambition ‘Every Drop’ for 2030. 95% of their beer is water and great beer requires a high-water quality. The company will continue to focus on lowering the usafe of water, the greater focus will be placed on water circularity (the reuse and recovery of water), and water replenishment and collaboration.
