Water smart industrial symbiosis

ULTIMATE aims to create economic value and increase sustainability by valorising resources within the water cycle.

Wastewater plays a key role both as a reusable resource but also as a carrier for energy and materials to be extracted, treated, stored and reused within a dynamic socio-economic and business oriented industrial ecosystem.

Reuse wastewater

Exploit energy

Recover Materials
