News #2 SpotView : Kick Off Meeting

The European SpotView Project – “Sustainable Processes and Optimized Technologies for Industrially Efficient Water Usage” – has just got underway, with the kick-off meeting taking place on 13th October at the EC R&D Commission in Brussels. The objective of the SpotView project is to develop and demonstrate innovative, sustainable and efficient processes and technology components in order to optimize the use of natural resources, especially water, in three industrial sectors (Dairy, Pulp and Paper, and Steel).

The SpotView consortium covers the whole value chain, from technology development to industrial applications. Economic exploitation of the technologies is pursued through a well described business case scenario. Dissemination and training activities are planned to maximize the impact of the project. Market opportunities for services and technology products beyond the SpotView project are expected to generate up to 2800 new equipment and 7000 new jobs in Europe!
