Pollution of water resources, climate change, increasing water demand due to population increase, limited water resources have gradually increased pressure on receiving water media, causing treatment of wastewater and water reuse to gain importance. In recent years, water and nutrition content of wastewaters and thus their reuse and even as a potential energy source have gained priority. Wastewaters are no longer “waste” to be disposed of. In parallel to these developments research in environmental biotechnology and advanced treatment Technologies have gained momentum. Within this framework, water and wastewater treatment Technologies group continues its studies in applied research.
