VALUE CE-IN project (July 2019 – February 2022), coordinated by ENEA-LEA laboratory and co-funded by the Emilia-Romagna Region (POR FESR 2014-2020 Programme), aims at the valorisation of the whole value chain related to municipal and industrial wastewater treatment according to a circular economy perspective. To achieve such goal, different experimental activities are carried out so as to promote concrete and safe practices for treated wastewater reuse as well as the development and validation of technologies to allow material recovery and energy valorisation from concentrated effluents and sludge. Additional investigated aspects are related to the analysis and quantification of some specific emerging contaminants, e.g. microplastics for which appropriate methodologies of sampling and analytical determination will be assessed and defined. The project outputs and results will enrich the database of the Industrial Symbiosis Software Platform, managed by ENEA, aimed at closing the cycles of materials and energy in the wastewater treatment sector promoting virtuous exchanges and synergies among the stakeholders, leading to the creation of new business models and with a positive impact on job employment. During the event, the project concept and its experimental phases will be presented, showing the results obtained so far and the foreseen evolution scenarios.
