Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl

Aarhus University Centre for Water Technology

Research on aquatic environments has been a major focus area for several research groups at Aarhus University, and in some areas the groups are in the absolute world elite.

The aim of WATEC is to unite and strengthen the research in water technology by forming a platform for collaboration between the various groups and to form a channel for communication with external partners.  

In WATEC engineers are working in close collaboration with researchers from the classical science disciplines on themes such as mapping of groundwater resources, analysis of contaminants in the groundwater, wastewater purification - including degradation of micro-contaminants -, N and P removal from drainage water, and restoration of lakes and streams.

The unique collaboration between the various research fields creates a strong basis for new knowledge, scientific breakthroughs, and solutions to important societal challenges.
