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.

The project is co-funded by LIFE, the EU’s financial instrument supporting environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects throughout the EU.

Οur Project is also part of the LIFE projects that are co-Funded by the Green Fund. The project team would like to thank the Green Fund for co-funding the NTUA activities.
