On August 31, 2021 WATEC and Aarhus Vand had organized a joint seminar on future wastewater treatment. The purpose of the seminar was to give insights into the ReWater project and further develop ideas for collaboration on research and education. ReWater is an ambitious project aiming at ensuring an economically and environmentally optimized wastewater structure in Aarhus. Aarhus ReWater is designed to become a resource efficient wastewater treatment that will be able to handle future population growth. 

The event contained speakers from Aarhus Vand presenting the ReWater project and speakers from Aarhus University presenting various research topics within wastewater treatment and sensor technology. After the presentations, the participants were given a tour of Marselisborg wastewater treatment plan.
