Two European projects working for different types of industries, but with one common objective: decreasing freshwater consumption while introducing circularity and wastewater treatment technologies, are joining forces. Reducing freshwater consumption is an ambitious and important target. In Europe, industrial activities use about 243,000 cubic hectometres of water every year on average, consequently, water-saving innovations will…
30% or more decrease of fresh water consumption
20% or more decrease in waste production
AccelWater’s project main objective is to optimize freshwater water consumption in the food and beverage industry under a water-waste-energy nexus by introducing beyond state-of-the-art water reclaiming, reusing and Artificial Intelligence enabled monitoring and control technologies.
“The food and beverage industry consumes 56% of the available water for industrial and urban use!”
