Technical Employees

Main research topics

Teaching and research activities of the chair of sanitary engineering and waste management are focused on protection of health, water, and other resources. The chair’s mission is knowledge development in the field of sanitary engineering with a wide range of research interests from drinking water supply to wastewater and sludge treatment. The overarching characteristic of the chair is its multidisciplinary expertise and research program.

Main research topics:

  • Drinking water distribution and wastewater discharge,
    Networks and modeling
  • Advanced wastewater treatment,
    Elimination of micropollutants,
    Retention of microplastics and their the behaviour in the aquatic environment
  • Sustainable sewage sludge treatment,
    Co-digestion, energy service, phosphorus recovery
  • Climate and resource protection,
    Use of resources contained in water and wastewater: Water, energy, phosphorus, metals etc.
  • Protection of critical infrastructures,
