Bases for technical measures
Within the workpackage “bases for technical measures” several pilot- and lab-scale studies are being conducted in order to elaborate further knowledge about the advanced wastewater treatment technologies for the removal of micropollutants. Promising technologies have to fulfill several criteria:
Elimination capacity: a broad range of micropollutants needs to be removed to a large extent.
No side products: the creation of toxic waste products needs to be avoided.
Applicability: the technology needs to be easy to integrate to the existing wastewater treatment system and easy to operate by the WWTP staff.
Cost-efficiency: Expenses (material, energy, staff and money) need to be within reasonable range.
