Urban Waste Water

Drinking water treatment - Use of slow filtration in (semi) arid regions

As part of the collaborative project to optimise slow filters and extend their applications, researchers in this subproject are studying the influence of extreme climatic conditions and treatment of very highly polluted untreated water on the mechanisms of slow filtration. The drinking water treatment method is notable for its low energy consumption, maintenance costs and waste production.
