SAWE – Safe water for all 

The SAWE research platform was active from 2015 to 2020. See current platforms »

Limited water resources are one of the main challenges faced by humankind. The SAWE platform aims for a paradigm shift: waste water compounds should be utilised rather than degraded and disposed of. 

The platform responds to the urgent need to remove harmful compounds from water. In a circular economy, SAWE searches for innovative ways to treat sludge and to recirculate nutrients.

SAWE provides cost-efficient frugal innovations for new businesses in developing countries.
