AquaNES will catalyze innovations in water and wastewater treatment processes and management through improved combinations of natural and engineered components.
The project focuses on 13 demonstration sites in Europe, India and Israel covering a representative range of regional, climatic, and hydro geological conditions. Among the demonstrated solutions are natural treatment processes such as bank filtration (BF), managed aquifer recharge (MAR) and constructed wetlands (CW) plus engineered pre- and post-treatment options
AquaNES specific objectives are
Marie Pettenati of BRGM won the price for the best poster at ISMAR10 this week in Madrid
The10th International Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge took place from May20-24, 2019, in Madrid, Spain. AquaNES was respresented with a number of talks and posters around cNES in relation to bank filtration and soil infiltration for groundwater recharge.
Marie was awarded for her work on intensive monitoring and characterisation of the water quality and hydrogeology at the site as to better understand mechanism and define leverage points for improving the scheme. Eventually these data fed into the development of an ICT tool for optimised operation of the site.
Special Issue "Efficiency of Bank Filtration and Post-Treatment" featuring AquaNES contributions.
Prof. Dr. Thomas Grischek, AquaNES work package leader, and Prof. Dr. Chittaranjan Ray have recently edited a special issue of the journal Water. It is fully dedicated to the efficiency of bank filtration and post-treatment. All AquaNES partners working in this area have contributed to it. Find the open access publications here.
What can membranes do to bank filtrate? Learn how nanofiltration removes contaminants in our demonstration site in Tiefwerder in Berlin, Germany. Take a virtual tour to better understand the concept.
Work on advanced oxidation pre-treatment in Lange Erlen site won the Best Presentation Award at IOA-EA3G
Robin Wünsch (FHNW) won the Best Presentation Award at the "Ozone and Advanced Oxidation – Solutions for Emergigng Pollutions of Concern to the Water and the Environment" conference held from 5. - 7. September 2018 in Lausanne.
Talking about "UV/H2O2 before biological treatment in drinking water – effects on the removal of micropollutants and biodegradability" he shared results from almost two years of experiments in the Lange Erlen drinking water production site.
Dr. Sylvie Baig (Head of Scientific Innovation Suez, Stategic Development Department) and Prof. Michel Roustan (Vice-President of IOA EA3G-group) congratulated on behalf of the scientific committee of the conference.
The combination of ozonation and constructed wetlands to treat secondary effluent is demonstrated at WWTP Schönerlinde in Berlin, Germany. Take a virtual tour to better understand the concept.
RSF developing from pilot plant to full-scale implementation
Site visit to Rheinbach demonstration site of Erftverband. Partners of Vertech Group and the project manager went there to see the long-time running pilot plant and the progress in the construction of the full-scale retention soil filter. In the AquaNES project the system will be investigated by Life Cycle Assessment to evidence its low environmental impacts in removing micro-pollutants from WWTP effluents and CSO spills.

Budapest Waterworks hosted the full consortium on 28-29 May 2018
The full consortium met in Budapest for its month 24 meeting, after two years of intensive work in the demonstration sites. Next to the technical progress, partners discussed ways towards a multi-criteria assessment of the interventions.
For a technical visit, Budapest Waterworks took the group out to one of their historic water reservoirs and the reverse osmosis pilot plant.
