Dear readers,

We are pleased to present you the 2nd DEMEAU newsletter, which delivers insights and shares developments within the DEMEAU FP7 project. The newsletter is distributed through our network that reaches a broad target audience including water practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and the media. However, we always appreciate it if you forward our newsletter to interested colleagues. If you do not yet receive our newsletter automatically and are interested, please write to us with the subject “newsletter subscription” to or visit our homepage where you can subscribe.

Within this second issue of the DEMEAU newsletter, we provide an update of the milestones of the project. First, we present an interview with Debbie Middendorp, Director of Global Marketing and Communications at PWN Technologies. The interview gives insight to the practical applications of one of the water technologies DEMEAU is exploring. Next, we give a brief overview of DEMEAU and its ongoing objectives. We also summarize recent achievements using a timeline. In the remainder of the newsletter, each Work Area (WA) offers a brief glance into ongoing project elements.

We also continue with our series of presenting members of the Project Advisory Committee and their vision of DEMEAU’s impact. This time, we feature a word from Dr. Rüdiger Wolter on the importance of connecting the various Work Areas of DEMEAU. We also again provide an overview of project outputs and publications that project members have already produced. Within the section Utility Updates we visualize an updated map of the demonstration sites. We conclude the newsletter with an overview of future events.

We encourage you to visit our website,, which gives further details on the DEMEAU project. All finalised public deliverables can be downloaded there. If you are present at one of the conferences where DEMEAU partners present their findings, feel free to get in touch with us!

If you have recommendations to improve our website or newsletter, or would like to explore the opportunity to cooperate, please do not hesitate to contact us ( We also welcome any questions or inquiries in general.

All the best,
