Managed Aquifer Recharge

Presenting: Technology Brochure on MAR

DEMEAU released the second of its series of informational technology brochures. A collaborative effort among project partners including, Ecologic Institute, KompetenzZentrum Wasser Berlin, CETaqua, Amphos, Quantis, KWR Watercycle Research Institute, IWW, and Hydor, the technology brochure aims to close the communication gap between scientists and end users regarding emerging information on Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR).

Upcoming Final Dissemination Events for June

In June, the DEMEAU project will hold its series of final dissemination events. To tailor the final events to the diverse stakeholders and interest groups of the project, the events will be held in a two part series. The first part, held in Zurich, Switzerland on June 17th and 18th, will be a Final Consortium Meeting and Utility Event. The second part, held at the annual WSsTP Conference in Brussels, Belgium, on June 24-26th will serve as a Final Policy Event. Agendas are forthcoming.

DEMEAU Animation: Dare to Drink? Emerging Pollutants in Our Water

Is your drinking water clean? Is it safe to drink? The animation illustrates what emerging pollutants are, how they enter water sources and what role individuals can take in improving the quality of their drinking water. The EU funded project DEMEAU demonstrates innovative technologies that address emerging pollutants.

Influence of a compost layer on the attenuation of 28 selected organic micropollutants under realistic soil aquifer treatment conditions: Insights from a large scale column experiment

Results from MAR soil-column experiments simulating soil aquifer treatments were recently published in the scientific journal, Water Reserach. The article, a collaborative effort among researchers working on the DEMEAU project, presents the results on experiments that have been used to simulate groundwater recharge and the impact of emerging pollutants in groundwater. Mario Schaffer, from the University Göttingen, is the lead author of the publication.

Pharmaceuticals in Wastewaters and Surface Waters Under Multistressors Situation: Fate, Adverse Effects, Risks and Removal Technologies

The three EU projects funded under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme, Globaqua, Cytothreat & Endetech, together with SCARCE from the Consolider Programme (Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness), organised a workshop in which pharmaceuticals were regarded from a multidisciplinary perspective. During talks, posters and discussions, experts from different fields had the opportunity for exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences from their respective fields. Marta Hernandez (cetaqua) presented a poster on WA1 results on Managed Aquifer Recharge. 

Project Steering Board Meeting at KWR premises

The second annual Project Steering Board meeting of the FP7 project DEMEAU took place on May 19th and 20th at the premises of KWR Watercycle Research Institute in Nieuwegein, the Netherlands. Project coordinator Theo van den Hoven welcomed the DEMEAU project members with a brief introduction of KWR, its services and activities and the scope and objectives of DEMEAU. Subsequently, the Work Area (WA) leaders had the opportunity to give a summarising overview of their work progress.
