VSA Platform for “Micropollutants Process Engineering”

The “Micropollutants Process Engineering” Platform is a project run jointly by the Swiss Water Association (VSA), Swiss Federal Office of the Environment (FOEN) and Eawag. It is affiliated to the Competence Centre for Wastewater Management within the VSA, and is located within Eawag’s Dübendorf site in the Department of Process Engineering.

The platform was set up in 2012 and has established itself as a central, independent advisory unit for technical issues on the elimination of trace elements in wastewater treatment plants. Its remit also includes the development of a body of specialist knowledge, as well as knowledge transfer between research and real-world applications, and the sharing of experience between the various stakeholders and industry players.
