Water reclamation technologies for safe artificial groundwater recharge

  • Research & Development
  • Oct 2005 - Dec 2008
  • Partners: 16 total, Rheinisch Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen is leading party
  • Donor: European Commission - Research Executive Agency
  • Donor Programme: Sixth Framework Programme of European Commission

The project develops hazard mitigation technologies for water reclamation providing safe and cost effective routes for artificial groundwater recharge. Different treatment applications are evaluated in terms of behavior of key microbial and chemical contaminants. The knowledge generated in the project and the technologies developed are suited to the needs of developing countries, which have a growing need of supplementation of freshwater resources.
