Summer School 2012
Enhanced Technologies for Water and Wastewater Treatment in Urban Systems
The 1st summer school addresses the impact of different waste water management and drinking water utilization strategies on human health within urban water cycles. The underlying hypothesis is that safe, reliable and long-term prevention of waste water borne contaminations in drinking water are a prerequisite to effectively disrupt the faecal-oral circle. This applies not only for direct human consumption but also for process water, e.g., in food and beverage industries, in cosmetics and pharmaceutical production and many other industrial applications. Water used for irrigation also has to be processed to meet hygienic standards, and a continuous challenge is the safe use of greywater.
