Wider uptake of water-smart solutions​

We must reuse the resources in our wastewater

WIDER UPTAKE aims to facilitate industrial symbiosis as a means to increase resource efficiency, limit emissions and develop sustainable business based on water-smart solutions.

  • Our hypothesis is that the barriers to wider uptake of water-smart solutions are not only technological but also of organizational, regulatory, social and economic character.​ We have a special focus on the interaction between these barriers.
  • The project involves demonstration cases in five countries: Norway, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Italy and Ghana.
  • We will co-develop a roadmap for implementation of water-smart solutions that will be available in an open access Virtual Learning and Sharing Centre.
