water treatment

The emphasis in this theme is on new sustainable water purification technologies to remove salt, priority compounds, biological material and other contaminants, as stated in the Water Framework Directive. New water treatment technologies are investigated based on physical, electrical and electrochemical principles. 

These principles can include molecular transport in electrical fields, magnetic, photonic and acoustic driving forces, or driven by pressure. Technologies presently studied are UV-LED reactors, in-situ formed membranes, and reverse osmosis.
