European centre of excellence
for sustainable water technology



To face the current and future demands for fresh water and water reuse, sustainable desalination of seawater, groundwater and wastewater is required. In this context, new technology is needed, with the capacity to remove the salts in a reusable form. Low energy use and avoidance of harmful chemical discharge are further demands for sustainable desalination.
Wetsus focuses on the development on desalination of seawater, brackish/fresh water and wastewater. Several new approaches based on various know-how disciplines are being studied by Wetsus. Fields like electrochemistry, crystallization, membrane separation, and adsorption are combined in the research projects.
