Environmental and Water Technologies

Processes and concepts for water and wastewater treatment and the recovery of valuable substances.

The research group investigates innovative technologies and processes for reducing emissions and removing harmful substances from water, wastewater and waste. This also includes recovery and reuse of materials. Collaboration with industry and utilities allows transferring our lab-tested processes into practice in pilot-scale or technical scale.
