Project iWAYS: on every machine

Monday, 23 May 2022

The iWAYS H2020 project – Innovative Water Recovery Solutions through the recycling of heat, materials and water in multiple sectors – is finalizing the specifications of the three use cases located in Spain, Italy and Sweden. These were discussed at the consortium meeting that took place at the institution of the scientific coordinator – Brunel University, in London – on 18 and 19 May.

Specifically, the ICRA team of the project integrated by W. Gernjak (PI), M. Abily and A. Tizchang is preparing to launch a public tender for the acquisition of the flotation and membrane distillation pilot plants that they will treat and recover the process water to recycle it again in the manufacturing process of Tubacex, a company dedicated to the manufacture of steel pipes located in the Basque Country.
