Master's Programme in Water Technology
Every day, two million tons of sewage and industrial and agricultural wastewater is discharged into the water bodies.
Water treatment is inadequate in many parts of the world, and legislation concerning wastewater is constantly being tightened. Moreover, sustainability challenges us to reflect on water treatment in different ways.
Instead of focusing on end-of-pipe treatment for pollution prevention, we should shift towards optimal resource utilisation and enhanced water recycling. Consequently, it is obvious that novel and sustainable materials and technologies for water treatment are needed.
