Technical University of Denmark (DTU) - Department of Environmental Engineering
DTU Environment is a department at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) aiming at developing technical and sustainable solutions to minimize the impact of society on the environment through research and teaching in water supply, waste water, solid waste, hydrology, geology, ecotoxicology, environmental chemistry and microbiology at an international level.
Water, soil and minerals are scarce and precious resources that must be carefully managed. The research and teaching of the department cover many aspects of this problem. For example, the department has expertise in groundwater and surface waters and their management. It seeks to determine how pollution from waste disposals and chemical spills affects the environment. DTU Environment also deals with solid waste disposal and water supply in urban environments. To meet these challenges the department conducts field and laboratory research as well as modelling studies in water resources systems, petrophysics,
