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).
The brochure offers an accessible guide that summarizes and presents key findings on the latest research from the project’s work on MAR. Drawing upon results from the lab as well as findings from DEMEAU demonstration sites across Europe, the technology brochure synthesises key information regarding the practical application and implementation of MAR for end users. "Various MAR types have already been in use for decades," the brochure explains, "however, in the light of the increasing number of new chemicals entering the water bodies, these natural treatment systems require a reevaluation.” The DEMEAU project is taking a fresh look at the technology to understand its complex dynamics and potential for new applications.
In addition to more general information of the status of the new technology, the technology brochure also showcases case studies that examine the added value of MAR in water quality monitoring in real time at its demonstration sites. As soon as the content is published, the brochure will be available for download here.
