Drivers and Barriers to Implementation of DEMEAU Technologies

Recently the partners of Work Area (WA) 5 have published a report on perceived drivers and barriers for successful implementation of the four groups of technologies investigated in DEMEAU: Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR), Hybrid Ceramic Membrane Filtration (HCMF), Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) and Bioassays.  Stakeholders in six case studies were questioned about their view in order to highlight which aspects have enabled or constrained market uptake of the innovative technologies.

Immersion Strategy and Applied Innovation

The Catalan Water Partnership aims to enhance the strategical reflexion with all stakeholders in the water sector in Catalunya and wants to foster the further internationalisation and innovation of the sector. DEMEAU will be presented by Ester Vilanova who will talk about the results that have been achieved and that are yet to come.

Bioassays - Interview with Dr. Frederic Leusch about trigger values

In the interview, Frederic Leusch explains the advantages and shortcomings of the use of bioassays that still need to be tackled. Dr Leusch is programme leader for "Water Quality and Diagnostics" at the Smart Water Research Centre as well as senior lecturer at the School of Environment at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. He worked in the frame of the Australian water recycling guideline on the application of bioassays in risk assessment.

Final Consortium Meeting With Demonstrating Large-Scale Ozonation

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.

Effect-Based Monitoring Techniques: Novel Bioanalytical Tools for Water Quality Safeguard

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.

Putting in vitro bioassay results in perspective – a concept for deriving human health based bioassay trigger values

The application of in vitro bioassays receives increasing attention for water quality assessment. A major advantage of bioassays is that they provide an integrated biological response concerning e.g. hormonal activity in environmental waters and (sources of) drinking water. In order to integrate bioassays into legislation and with that into the practice of risk assessment for water supply, adequate limit values are needed.
