Water-intensive industry together with technology and service providers moves towards circular economy

The CEIWA project funded by Business Finland brings academic and industry partners together to develop sustainable, safe and resource-efficient industrial water cycles.

The project involves a broad network of partners and is set to deliver a major impact. The CEIWA consortium is made up of six research institutions and eight companies. The overall project budget is more than €6.3 million.

The results will eventually benefit water-intensive industries, technology suppliers and service providers. The proposed solutions hold promise for a wide range of industrial applications.

The collaborative two-year project was launched in June 2021. The industry partners are Andritz, Kemira, Teollisuuden Vesi, UPM, Valmet, Fortum, Gasum and Platform of Trust. The academic partners include Tampere University, the universities of Helsinki, Oulu and Eastern Finland, LUT University and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.

CLIC Innovation facilitated the project preparation process.
