NWO - Normativities of wastewater treatment: Putting micro-algae to work in Ecovillage Boekel

Project Details


Current sanitation systems fulfil their promise of preventing infectious diseases. However, they overuse potable water, allow valuable resources to go to waste and have trouble combatting chemical contaminations. This poses long term ecological, economic, health and social problems. The project proposed combines three lines of research so as to develop a water saving system that recovers nutrients and microelements while removing micro-pollutants and human pathogens from domestic waste water. Line (1) is concerned with the technological aspects of the design; line (2) with its social aspects; while line (3) analyses the normativities involved.
