WATER NEXUS -- WP 3: Integral blueprints -- The project focuses on strategies to balance water supply and water demand between industrial and agricultural systems and contain both saline and fresh water options. The search project includes water technology and green technologies such as wetlands. The emphasis will be on industry and agri/horticulture where large volumes of water are produced and used. WP3 focuses on the development of integral solutions on system level for practical, high impact, cases. Maximising the use of alternatives for freshwater is supported by developing (real time) models connecting the availability of fluctuating quantities of water of different qualities and a variety of end uses.
