LIWET - Laboratory of Industrial Water and Ecotechnology


LIWET (short for: Laboratory of Industrial Water and EcoTechnology) focuses on the implementation and scale-up of sustainable technologies for the recovery of water, nutrients and energy.

This can be both high-tech and low-tech options, including aerobic biological and physical-chemical water treatment techniques, advanced oxydation processes, membrane filtration, anaerobic digestion, algae technology and constructed wetlands.

The research is performed both on the basis of experimental and pilot plants as well as mathematical models. The main goal is to optimize treatment plants in an economical and ecological way.
