Project Ô: demonstration of planning and technology tools for a circular, integrated and symbiotic use of water
Water is vital for global economic and social development. Without water there would be no food, no life, no health and safety, no environment and nature, no economy: this element contributes to all the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
This resource is becoming increasingly scarce and difficult to manage in many regions of the world.
Project Ô develops innovative solutions for integrated and circular water management in local networks.

Demonstrate methods and technologies for an integrated and symbiotic use of water in the logic of circular economy (waste water, recycling ...).
Develop an Integrated Water Management (IWM) system to be tested in four industrial pilot cases worldwide.
To provide decision making tools for planning and conscious consumption of water to stakeholders (policy makers, consumers, companies...) in order to preserve this resource.
The technologies developed in Project Ô have been installed in four different industrial and domestic water management contexts (Italy, Israel, Spain e Croatia) e sono una dimostrazione pratica dell’applicazione del concetto di economia circolare rispetto all’utilizzo dell’acqua.
Beyond these initial installations, the project’s technologies are intended to be used in a wide range of contexts. This allows more people to participate in a circular water economy, helping to support the transformation processes of the economy and the environment.
23 partners including companies, research centres, universities and public bodies from EU and non-EU countries.
