Coordinated by National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), LIFE BRINE-MINING project –«Demonstration of an advanced technique for eliminating coal mine wastewater (brines) combined with resource recovery», promotes the swift from a linear to a circular business model solution. The projects aims to enable the improvement of the saline wastewater management performance of coal mining activities by recovering useful and marketable materials as water and salts. This way, the environmental impact of coal mine activities associated with brine discharge is minimized, while closing the loop of brine effluent.
