Circular economy of water in industrial processes (CEIWA)
Other university or unit
In the future industrial emissions will face more stringent regulations that concern especially water intensive industry, such as pulp and paper industry. The complexity and other challenges need to be managed in order to meet the stricter environmental legislation of the water utilization and emissions. To respond to these ascending challenges in the water intensive industry, water management and circularity play a crucial role. The management of complex circular industrial water systems is a challenge that requires new tools to perform efficiently. The CEIWA project develops solutions for digitalization, technology development, management of different pollutants, and legislative aspects. In addition to providing solutions to the water intensive industry, the results of the project are also amenable by technology and service providers.
The industry partners in CEIWA are Andritz, Kemira, Teollisuuden Vesi, UPM, Valmet, Fortum, Gasum and Platform of Trust. The academic partners include Tampere University, University of Oulu, University of Helsinki, University of Eastern Finland, LUT University and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.
