In the video below you can see why DTU is a part of the HEPWAT project:


Why do we participate in the HEPWAT project?
We are in HEPWAT to test and demonstrate solutions to two of the major issues in wastewater treatment - nitrous oxide emissions and bioactive micro pollutants.

Our ideas for improvement are based on two previous projects, LaGas (Diagnostics, monitoring and mitigation of N2O emissions from wastewater treatment operations: Towards climate compatible technology) and Mermiss (Environmentally Effective Purification of High Potency Drugs in Hospital Waste Water).
It is of great interest that we can test our solutions in a large pilot plant, as a final step before full-scale.
