The Research Institute for Water and Waste Management (FiW) was established in 1979 as an independent at the RWTH Aachen University. The close links with the university provide an optimal framework for the institute to find solutions for problems in water and waste management that require interdisciplinary approaches. FiW cooperates closely in particular with the Department of Environmental Engineering.
