Drinking Water

Compilation of odour-forming agents in reservoirs and treatment of odour-containing raw water – subproject 1: molecular basis

The purpose of the current project is to analyse cyanobacteria to determine their effect on odour formation in drinking water sourced from reservoirs. The outcome shows that the gene geoA plays a particularly important role in smell formation. A further section of the project will include the testing, optimisation and adaptation of a photo-oxidative water treatment process to eliminate odours.
