Biodegradable polymer granulate as carrier material in water treatment

The project partners are studying the possibility of using biodegradable polymers (BAP) as a substrate in water treatment plants. The BAPs act as carrier material for microbiologically active cleaning films and as a sorption surface, which will be particularly effective in eliminating high levels of nitrate and organic pollutants.
