Since 9/11, heavy emphasis has been placed on safety of infrastructures. This project will develop a monitoring system that covers the entire infrastructure, is embedded in a decision support system, and offers a platform for extension.
Will bring to the prototype a tool for monitoring water quality based on voltammetric analysis by boron doped diamond electrodes (fe, cu, zn, as, ag, pb, ni) and ion selective electrodes (nh4, no3, cl, k, ca, na) for all water types.
To innovate the process of preparing material mixtures for the production of pressed boards made of recycled rubber granulate obtained by crushing used tyres.
The proposed cooperation for developing dana - a dynamic anaerobic aerobic reactor - will enable, for the fist time, the integration of anaerobic and aerobic processes in one vertical configuration.
Research and development of a direct wind driven desalination technology for the offshore industry. A heat pump will be driven by a windmill (no generator inside). The heat pump is part of a destillation/evaporation process thus producing potable water from seawater.
Develop an innovative chemical free leachate treatment facility by using a novel type of membranal electrolysis treatment technology, electro-flotation, and by remote monitoring and controlling of water quality. The aim is to locally treat landfill leachate to prevent environmental contamination.
The project proposes the development of a process control instrument to integrate and optimise two water treatment technology units: vertical constructed wetland and ultrasound for sensitive water treatment systems where chemicals are an unsatisfactory solution like fish farms.
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.
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.
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.
