Within the utility events, DEMEAU practitioners and scientists present the benefits of the demonstrated water technologies to several target groups, mainly the consortium partners, technology users, scientists, policy makers, and the broader public.
On October 2 2014, a DEMEAU utility event took place at the premises of Aigües de Barcelona. It was the first utility event that combined the presentation of research and implementation of Managed Aquifer Recharge with an interactive workshop contributing to work in DEMEAU’s Work Area 5 on Life Cycle Analysis and Life Cycle Costing.
DEMEAU held the first in its three part series of final events in Zurich, Switzerland on June 17-18, 2015. Hosted on the premises of Eawag just outside of Zurich in Dübendorf, attendees engaged in collaborative knowledge exchange and discussions on the final research results, conclusions and contributions of the project. The two day event brought together the expertise of the whole project consortium, where the work areas presented the final results of their work within the project.
Das EU-finanzierte Projekt DEMEAU: Demonstration von Technologien zur Behandlung neuer Schadstoffe in der Wasser- und Abwasserreinigung organisierte den sechsten in der Reihe der Utility-Event in Roetgen, nahe Aachen am 11. Juni 2015. Teilnehmende waren Wissenschaftler, Anwender des Wassersektors und Experten auf dem Gebiet der Automatic Neural Net Control System (ANCS) und Membranfiltration.
The EU-funded project DEMEAU: Demonstration of promising technologies to address emerging pollutants in water and waste water held the third of its series of Utility Events in Paris, France on 29 January, 2015. In attendance were a diverse group of scientists, end users (including utility operators), and experts in the field of environmental chemistry and ecotoxicology.
On December 5, 2013, the first DEMEAU utility event in combination with a workshop was held at Berliner Wasserbetriebe (BWB) in Berlin Tegel. Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) through bank filtration or pond infiltration has a long tradition in Berlin. The city has been producing its drinking water since more than 150 years through bank filtration. Against the background of global changes, aquifer storage has become relevant in other contexts as well, like preventing sea-water intrusion or sustaining groundwater levels.
