The MULTI-ReUse project was introduced at the Leading Trade Fair for Environmental Technologies IFAT 2018 in May in Munich, Germany. It was located at the booth of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) together with other funded projects. The key topics of the fair that counted visitor record numbers this year were the more sustainable use of resources, improved recycling of plastics, water and waste 4.0.
In their final press release the organizers wrote: “Filtering of microplastics, more effective recycling of plastics and the digital transformation of the entire industry: For five days, the world’s leading trade fair for environmental technologies IFAT revolved around the issues of water, sewage, waste and raw materials management.”
During those five days, some members of the MULTI-ReUse project consortium, alongside project coordinator Barbara Zimmermann, were able to introduce the concept, the objectives and the methodologies of the water reuse project MULTI-ReUse to an interested audience. With the help of an interactive multitouch-table, the visitors of the fair could get an additional visual overview of the project and the envisaged outcomes.
Project coordinator Barbara Zimmermann was satisfied with the interest MULTI-ReUse received. “We could present our idea of how to reuse water directly where it is needed to an interested audience and I hope we can be a part of a more sustainable water future.”
