Process- and wastewater – valuable resources
The technological challenges in connection with water are manifold. Innovative approaches and methods are needed to use existing resources more effectively and to exploit new strategies, such as decentralized and adaptable infrastructure systems for collecting and distributing water or – just as important – finding possibilities for re-using water. It is obvious that rainwater should be treated to open up a new resource. Wastewater can be purified with modern, cost-effective filter technologies and in adapted biological processes. Ideally, the substances recovered from wastewater during the purification process can be recycled almost completely for energy and solids.
