  • Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems

    Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems

    Sewer systems constitute a very significant heritage in European cities. Their structural quality and functional efficiency are key parameters to guarantee the transfer of domestic and industrial wastewater to treatment plants without infiltration nor exfiltration. Infiltration of groundwater is particularly detrimental to treatment plant efficiency, while exfiltration of wastewater can lead to groundwater contamination. The European research ...

  • Nanotechnology for Water and Wastewater Treatment

    Nanotechnology for Water and Wastewater Treatment

    The rapid development of nanoscience enables a technology revolution that will soon impact virtually every facet of the water sector. Yet, there is still too little understanding of what nanoscience and nanotechnology is, what can it do and whether to fear it or not, even among the educated public as well as scientists and engineers from other disciplines. Despite the numerous books and textbooks available on the subject, there is a gap in the ...
