Congrats to Benedikt Aumeier!

20. December 2019

Recently a joint paper was published in Water Research, developing a pilot-scale for household water treatment and storage. An optimal removal of turbidity, target pesticides and DOC was shown and Effect-based Methods (EBMs) have been successfully used to evaluate the process performance. With this link Elsevier provides 50 days of free access to the article.
