Evides Industrial Water is with nine other parners involved in IMPROVED, project for a sustainable approach to the industrial process water supply chain. IMPROVED is one of the projects that is being financed within the Interreg V Flanders-Netherlands programme.  Evides Industrial Water is collaborating with Ghent University, BASF, Dow and Yara Chemicals on IMPROVED: a project to improve process water purification. An excellent example of cooperation in the water supply chain and beyond.

Project description
IMPROVED stands for Integrale Mobiele PROceswatervoorziening Voor een Economische Delta (Integrated Mobile Process Water Provision for an Economic Delta). Ten partners are involved in this project for a sustainable approach to the industrial process water supply chain.

They are doing this by developing new water treatment configurations that are customised to the specific industrial processes in which water of various qualities can be turned into process water of the desired quality. This “desired quality” it particularly important. Aside from simulating the entire water treatment process from pre-treatment and desalination, the mobile IMPROVED system can also be used to simulate the effect of the input water quality on the efficiency of steam preparation, corrosion, and contamination of the cooling towers, without the need to intervene in the actual process.

Interreg
IMPROVED is one of the projects that is being financed within the Interreg V Flanders-Netherlands programme. Through the Interreg programme 2014-2020, the European Commission is making over 152 million euros available from the European Regional Development Fund for international cooperation to reinforce and promote innovation and sustainable development in this border region. To this end, a partnership between Flanders and the Netherlands, involving the five Flemish and three southern Dutch provinces, developed a programme to invest in smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
