Concern over their volume in waste and drinking water is growing globally. By modernising the current wastewater purification process over 95 percent of contaminants can be removed from wastewater.

Women need not justify their place in the technology industry
"Women are no longer an anomaly in the technology industry, although we speak of them as if they were.

However, I will venture to claim that the matter does not need to be corrected and as an engineer I trust the figures", states Riina Salmimies, LUT Director of Research and Innovation Services.
