Advanced water and wastewater treatment

Aarhus University Centre for Water Technology are performing dedicated research on optimization of municipal wastewater treatment.

Of special focus to the centre is the use of Anaerobic Ammonium Oxidation (Anammox) for wastewater treatment and removal of organic micro-pollutants, such as pharmaceuticals, biocides and flame retardants from the waste water.

The increasing focus on removal of organic micro-pollutants, such as pharmaceuticals, biocides and flame retardants calls for new biological and chemical technologies to polish treated wastewater before discharge to recipients.

Aarhus University Centre for Water Technology holds advanced research expertise and optimal research facilities for the testing and development of novel methods and technologies with in this field.
