Vitens-Dunea NWO-TTW partnership puts sand filters in the spotlight!

Sand filters, widely applied technologies for drinking water treatment, have been around for centuries. These filters are well-known to effectively sieve suspended solids from surface waters, or from iron-containing groundwaters. Also, as slow filters with a fine sand fraction, these filters are known to remove pathogenic micro-organisms and organic material from the water. With over a century of experience, one might think we know everything about these filters, however surprisingly, only very little is understood regarding the biological and chemical processes that occur in them. The aim of Vitens-Dunea’s partnership with NWO-TTW is to increase our understanding of sand filters to increase operational efficiency, control and contaminant removal.

Home lab safety adaptation Electrodialysis tests Tobias Opschoor

Because of the situation regarding COVID 19, the Waterlab at the faculty of Civil Engineering from TU Delft is closed. I have received the authorization to remove my setup from the Waterlab and place it at a different location to continue with the experiments required for the fulfillment of my MSc. I would like to clarify the added safety measures I have taken in order to require TU Delft safety standards and governmental safety measures regarding social distancing to minimize COVID 19 spread.
