In 2015, we launched our first water recovery challenge with Pladur, and it had a high repercussion between our solvers! Meet the winners!

Remember our water recovery challenge?

pladur Pladur challenge Ennomotive to bring an effective solution to improve their manufacturing process. Plasterboard is made from gypsum mineral treated with a complex process, consuming a lot of water that is finally evaporated during calcine and drying. The challenge was launched with a description of the manufacturing process, energy consumption data and technical stuff. Imagen1 Participants´countries
34 participants from 10 countries (Germany, India, Jordan, Mexico...) accepted Pladur´s challenge and, finally, more than 15 presented their solutions! Engineering students, academia, freelancers and companies from India, Spain, United States and Sweden competed at semifinals! Amazing don’t you think?
