Natural treatment methods for runoff water in circular economy hubs

Library of Challenges

Short description: Local circular economy hubs has large constructed areas. Controlling uncontaminated runoff waters and possibly contaminated water separately brings multiple benefits. Local solutions for natural treatment of runoff waters would reduce waste water plant flows and create local diverse ecosystems.

Market potential: In industrial estates biocarbon based natural filtration fields, wetlands and flood parks could be moderate carbon sinks and increase the quality of local waterbeds and increase local biodiversity.

Timing: Investments for runoff water handling solutions and treatment systems could be possible within the next 5 years.

Desired result: We would like to find best available new solutions, that are economically feasible and would increase biodiversity, increase water retention capacity, reduce amount of waste waters and improve local water quality. Carbon sink solutions would be optimal.

Information on challenge owner: Mid-size SME (50-259 staff).

Market presence of challenge owner: Active in one country.
