From water to waste to product - The next step of water recycling: how to upcycle waste-water into useable material?

Date: 04 September 2018
Time: 20:00 - 22:00
Location: Pakhuis De Zwijger, Amsterdam

On a daily basis, we use 130-160L water per house hold in the Netherlands. In order to clean and re-use this water in a sustainable way, our waste-water streams are being recycled in so called waste-water treatment plants. However, the waste streams of these treatment plants are still being digested or incinerated. In order to fully close the circular loop of our water management, we need to turn these waste streams into useable products. Researchers from AMS Institute and TU Delft will take us into the world of upcycling valuable raw materials, such as bio-composite and plastics from waste-water streams. What can we create from waste-water; and are citizens ready for such extensive upcycling processes: would you be willing to use a disposable fork or medicine made from waste streams?

Join the conversation on September the 4th in Pakhuis de Zwijger. With amongst others: Peter Mooij, Research Fellow AMS Institute. Register for the event on the website.
