ARREAU - Accelerating Resource Recovery from Water Cycle (AG108)

ARREAU will develop market plans for viable and profitable value chains for resources from the water cycle. We will build on existing cutting edge initiatives in several regions in Europe, where resources with a high added value are produced, such as phosphorus and cellulose from wastewater and iron and calcium carbonate residuals from drinking water. This will contribute to increasing resource efficiency and will create jobs and market opportunities for the European industry and SMEs. Although the techniques and therefore resources are available in the water cycle, widespread production of resources fall far behind its potential. The activities in the water cycle are run by utilities, not used to commercially develop products and bringing these to a highly competing –price, quality, service, security of supply- market. We will review current European initiatives and best practices of resource recovery and reuse. Barriers and constraints for resource recovery and reuse will be identified. We will explore the key success factors of resource value chains with all engaged stakeholders. The outcomes will be used to develop frameworks that can be used to remove bottlenecks and enable successful resource recovery in other regions in Europe and beyond.

Specific actions of ARREAU will be:
• Review current European initiatives and best practices of resource recovery from the water cycle and value chains.
• Identify success factors for viable and profitable value chains of recovered resources.
• Identify barriers, constraints and requirements for implementation of value chains.
• Develop market plans to exploit and commercialize opportunities for recovered resources and for the enabling technologies.
• Define and implement an effective and well-targeted communication and dissemination strategy.
