Usually treated wastewater is being fed into the rivers but what if you could reuse it instead?
That is the focus of the research project MULTI-ReUse funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), over the course of the next three years. With the application of new procedures this so called ‘service water’ wouldn’t necessarily reach the quality of drinking water but it could be reused for a couple of other purposes, such as for the industrial sector, for agricultural purposes or groundwater recharge. It also could contribute to the saving of drinking water and the preservation of groundwater levels.
Nine project partners develop new technologies and methodologies for the reuse of treated wastewater, which are then being tested in a pilot plant in the North of Germany. Reliable procedures for the quality control of the water, an evaluation tool and concepts to market the results of the project also will be developed.
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.
On 17.-18.04.2018 the status workshop from WavE takes place in Frankfurt, Germany. The funding measure WavE is financed by the German Federal Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF) within the focal topic “Sustainable Water Management” as part of the framework programme “Research on Sustainable Development” and the research agenda on Green Economy.
