Advanced water and wastewater treatment

WATEC conducts dedicated research in optimization of municipal wastewater treatment.

Of particular interest is the use of Anaerobic Ammonium Oxidation (Anammox) for wastewater treatment and removal of organic micropollutants such as pharmaceuticals, biocides and flame retardants from wastewater. The increasing focus on this subject calls for new biological and chemical technologies to polish treated wastewater before discharge to recipients.

WATEC holds advanced research expertise and optimal research facilities for the testing and development of novel methods and technologies in this field.
