THE WATER AND WASTE WATER SECTORS FACE TREMENDOUS CHALLENGES TO ASSURE SAFE, COST-EFFECTIVE, AND SUSTAIN- ABLE WATER SUPPLY AND SANITATION SERVICES.
The water and waste water sectors face tremendous challenges to assure safe, cost-effective, and sustain- able water supply and sanitation services.
DEMEAU promotes the uptake of prototypes and practices from previous EU research projects to address emerging pollutants in water and waste water.
Essential in the DEMEAU approach is the cooperation with water utilities that have committed to act as launching customers for the selected technologies. Existing and improved performance assessment methodologies will be used to benchmark the novel technologies against existing ones. This is to demon- strate the suitability and cost-effectiveness of the prototype technologies.
Demonstration sites launched by utilities will act as transfer points for the technologies and will generate market opportunities for the SME’s involved.
The DEMEAU project runs from September 2012 until August 2015.
