The Complexity of Water-reuse

Closed for application

MODULE TYPE: SDG 11 – Energy and Sustainability


Typically, our wastewater streams are treated and discharged in nature. However, both droughts and increasing concerns on (micro)pollutants will dictate that different water treatment and re-use strategies need to be employed. From a technical point of view, treating and upgrading waste-water streams for re-use is already well within our capabilities. Dense and selective membranes are well designed to effectively retain even the smallest pollutants, giving the quality needed for re-use yet some important issues remain. In this summer course, you will be divided into teams to tackle real-life challenge together with experts from their fields, and you will be asked to design a complete wastewater treatment and re-use scheme for a decentralized industrial area. This course is offered as a part of CuriousU summer school at the University of Twente.
