Application areas, Stakeholders and Implementation Barriers of DEMEAU Technologies

WA5 aims to ensure that the principles of sustainability guide the market uptake and implementation of DEMEAU’s water technologies targeting micropollutants. One year into the project, WA5 has achieved the first milestones and identified an initial set of case studies to be carried out in close collaboration with other work areas of the DEMEAU project. The case studies build the basis of WA5’s sustainability analysis and the resulting proposal of routes to foster market uptake.

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.

Den Prozess im Griff!? Zukunftweisend mit künstlichen neuronalen Netzen und Membranfiltration in der Wasseraufbereitung

***English version below***

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.

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.

European Water Policy: Challenges for Hydrogeologists

The DEMEAU WA1 project partners AMPHOS21 and Kompetenzzentrum Wasser Berlin were requested to present their work at the Hydrogeology workshop organized by the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) in Brussels. The aim of the workshop was to highlight those areas where hydrogeologists are playing an important role in the implementation of the European water policy

Managed Aquifer Recharge in Europe – Challenge or Opportunity for the Environment?

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.
