July 8, 2020 as Live Video Presentation

"Methods for more efficiency in water resource recovery" by Dr. Dr. Sebastian Reinecke (Department of Experimental Thermal Fluid Dynamics, Institute of Fluid Dynamics)

Availability of clean water is of highest relevance to secure future development of society and industry, especially when we consider the stress of freshwater resources in future scenarios due to growing global population and impacts of climate change. Efficient treatment of polluted water is therefore crucial and shall allow to reduce stress of natural resources by recovering valuable resources in the wastewater, namely clean water, nutrients, minerals and energy, with highest efficiency and flexibility. The talk will present the current associated scientific topics of the working group touching the fields of fluid dynamics and (bio)chemical engineering. Moreover, the sustainable technological and system approaches covered by the recently started Helmholtz-Innovation Lab CLEWATEC are introduced.  

The live stream starts on July 8, 2020 at 1 p.m. and is accessible for HZDR employees as well as external users via the following link:

The HDZR Research Talks are a program for HZDR employees of all research fields. Within this framework, scientists give lectures on current projects, methods and procedures and look forward to exchanging ideas with colleagues in order to jointly develop ideas and initiate projects. The Research Talks are also open to external interested parties.

  • Lectures and discussions are held in English.
  • Participation is free of charge.
  • Registration is not required. External visitors need to check in at the HZDR main entrance 30 min in advance.
