From integrated environmental technology to water and waste water treatment, from air and gas purification to energy and resource efficiency, from soil recovery to sustainability assessments and climate protection
What is the role of Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) in industrial water management? This question is answered by the ProcessNet Expert Group “Production-Integrated Water/Waste Water Technology”, in cooperation with the DGMT-DME “Committee Water Future” (AWZ) in their discussion paper. Experts warn about excessive expectations in ZLD related to economical and ecological perspectives. Pros and cons are listed in the discussion paper and decision paths are outlined for industrial application.

R3Water aims to support the transition from an urban wastewater treatment plant to a production unit of different valuables. Different types of technologies and innovative solutions will be further developed and tested at the demonstration sites that are located in Belgium, Spain and Sweden.
Das Projekt DaNa2.0 hat zum Ziel, in einem interdisziplinären Ansatz mit Wissenschaftlern aus Humantoxikologie, Ökotoxikologie, Biologie, Physik, Chemie und Pharmazie Forschungsergebnisse zu Nanomaterialien und deren Auswirkungen auf den Menschen und die Umwelt für interessierte Laien verständlich aufzubereiten. Diese Daten werden auf der Internetplattform www.nanopartikel.info und auch durch andere Medien der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht.
The Technology Roadmap "Energy and GHG Reductions in the Chemical Industry via Catalytic Processes" explores how the chemicals sector can harness catalysis and other related technology advances to improve on energy efficiency in its production processes. Furthermore, it evaluates how continuous improvements and breakthrough technology options can affect energy use and reduce greenhouse gas emission rates in the chemical sector. Measures from policy makers, investors, academia and the sector to facilitate developments in catalytic technology and implement its potential around the globe are also described. The roadmap has been jointly developed by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) and DECHEMA to demonstrate the role catalytic processes can play to improve the chemicals sector's energy and GHG emissions intensity.
Geobiotechnology does not only contribute to the remeditation of soil and mining waters. It offers also significant potential for the exploitation of resources from primary deposits as well as tailings and heaps and for recycling. The status paper by the Temporary Working Group Geobiotechnology gives an overview on the current status of research and technology and discusses perspectives for the further development. Relevant stakeholders in Germany and educational courses are also listed.
