Water used by households and industry is typically collected via sewer systems bringing it to centralised wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). Managing this wastewater is becoming increasingly crucial for ensuring a clean environment and public health. Today’s wastewater treatment encompasses a plethora of different technologies with increasing focus on water recycle and reuse. Energy consumption has become another driver for WWTP optimization as well as carbon footprint. Micropollutants have become a new concerning issue to deal with in urban wastewater systems.
A trans-disciplinary approach is essential to design, develop and optimize new age wastewater treatment technologies and facilities. This project focuses on harnessing complementary expertise of the Partner Institutes to establish a multi-lateral Indo-European research network for making significant contributions in these areas.
