  5. 5. Boosting opportunities - Innovating water EIP Water WATER CIRCLE boosts switching from the conventional Industrial/Urban Wastewater Treatment (I/UWWT) to the Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) concept, changing wastewater from waste into a source of energy, water, nutrients… The main aim of this Action Group is the development of an anaerobic membrane reactor for water treatment, promoting its uptake within water sector and disseminating its benefits in line with Circular Economy bases. www.eip-water.eu/AnMBR

Bioenergy Water & Nutrients Biosolids Waste Source of Resources AnMBRCurrent WWTPs VS. Net energy SURPLUS of up to 0.2 kWh/m3 Energy demand 0.2-0.5 kWh/m3 Reduction of up to 80% CO2 and 100% N2O emissions
