The SEALEAU technology has been demonstrated at pilot scale in Greece (see also Photo 1). The plant is powered by renewable energy. The contribution of our solution to Blue Growth has been recognized by the European Commissioner, Mr. Karmenu Vella, who awarded the 1st Blue Growth Awards to our company in May 2015.
Our story starts in September 2010, when our LIFE project called SOL-BRINE started. Within SOL-BRINE an eco-innovative technology was developed to eliminate brine effluents from seawater desalination plants. Already back then, we had identified the coal mine as a sector with important replicability potential – LIFE BRINE-MINING is making this after 10 years a reality! SOL-BRINE was selected as the best out of 4,306 EU LIFE projects implemented over the past 25 years.
