We explore technologies and concepts in the typical municipal wastewater treatment, for process water treatment and for the treatment of industrial wastewater, for example from paper, food or textile industry in a national and international context.
At the core of wastewater treatment are anaerobic, anoxic and aerobic biological processes. We work with systems containing suspended, granular or fixed biomass. Separation technologies range from (chemically enhanced) sedimentation, over filtration to nanofiltration and reverse osmosis. Adsorptive and oxidative elimination of micropollutants are also part of our research portfolio.
As wastewater is more and more viewed as a resource, we develop new and reexplore old concepts to guarantee chemical and biological parameters, for example in direct wastewater reuse.
