On 28th May a webinar was held on innovative technologies for water desalination and saltwater revaluation in the framework of the H2020 project SEA4VALUE, where professionals from different organisations presented not only different desalination technologies for water recovery but also for the revaluation of brine as a resource of raw materials of high added value.
The webinar started with a presentation by Sandra Meca, Eurecat, who presented the SEA4VALUE project, of which CWP is part of the consortium. Then Guillem Gilabert, Dupont, presented the SWRO dry membranes, a durable and sustainable technology, Anna Viladomiu, Poltank, presented the desalination filtration technology using GRP filters, Victor Monsalvo, Aqualia, presented the new generation of energy self-sufficient desalination plants as a source of fresh water and critical raw materials. Finally Andrea Cipollina, Università degli Studi di Palermo, presented the SEArcularMINE project: circular processing of seawater brine for the recovery of valuable raw materials.
It was an activity funded by the SEA4VALUE project (Grant Agreement nº 869702) and which achieved the registration of more than 150 people from both the private and public sectors, especially those working in the desalination sector, a leading issue in Spain. At the end of the day there was a session of Questions & Answers where the speakers answered the questions that the attendees could ask at the same platform.
