Eureka projects

Advanced technology for intensification of biological wastewater treatment using a magnetic device will be developed. A magnetic device will be constructed, evaluated and optimised for various biofilm structures (suspended or attached to novel macro/nano-fibre scaffolds) and specific wastewaters.
Project ID: 

To develop an innovative, low-cost and robust technique to remove arsenic from drinking water. This objective is to be achieved by integrating two complementary innovations: 1) subsurface arsenic removal. 2) arsenic filtration with adsorption of arsenic onto iron oxide coated sand.
Project ID: 

Drinking water sources are becoming increasingly contaminated with emerging substances (e.G., Pharmaceuticals and hormones). Currently no sufficient treatment technology is available. In this project belgian, german and dutch partners develop an absolute barrier for emerging substances.
Project ID: 

Regeneration of acids and the recovery of metals from spent acids solutions after the stainless steel pickling process. Reducing the emission of nitrates in the waste water. Avoiding the need for land-filling of acid-metal residues in special landfills. Producing reusable by-products.
Project ID: 

Raising the productivity and competitiveness of European businesses through technology. Boosting national economies on the international market, and strengthening the basis for sustainable prosperity and employment.
