Among other things, the Water Technology research group investigates how water can be used or reused as efficiently as possible so that scarce fresh water can be used (also) as drinking water.
A delta area such as Zeeland has hardly any area-specific fresh water. It often comes from other areas. However, many companies, for example in agriculture and the chemical industry, need a lot of fresh water for their processes.
For livability in delta areas, water supply, water purification and resource recovery are therefore important issues.
These challenges require special techniques for reusing and purifying water. The Water Technology research group deals with this and focuses on desalination techniques, reuse of water flows and the application of systems that monitor and regulate water quality and quantity.
The research group Water Technology is a partner in the Horizon 2020 program of the…
