4 Water stress in Europe Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

5 Global Challenges Population growth and urbanisation Billions Less Developed Regions More Developed Regions Source: United Nations, World Population Prospects: The 2004 Revision (medium scenario),. Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

6 Other issues in Eastern Europe Dzeramā ūdens patēriħš, l/dienā uz cilvēku Water consumption l/pc/pd Laiks, gadi HPC (CFU /ml) A water distribution time (h) Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

7 Global Challenges New pollutants in our resources Nano/Bio Ageing population Cultivation of energy crops & biogas production Multi barrier approach needed Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

8 Are our water supplies really safe? More illness among consumers after distribution system works 0,7 % affected yearly!? Berliner Wasserwerkstatt Recent Norwegian study proves significant effect of low pressure events on gastrointestinal illness among residents.for Norway, it was extrapolated that each year 1 out of 140 people is affected. Again an example that suboptimal operation may compromise public health 8

9 Global challenges Climate Change and Energy Urbanisation Emerging pollutants Ageing infrastructure Globalisation More efficiency New technologies Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

10 Rethink current water supply systems, provide improved technologies and practices 19 Mil., Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

11 The team > 100 researchers, 30 institutes Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

12 partners Strong involvement Germany Universities & Research Institutes Technology Providers Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

13 Case studies to stimulate integration and end user involvement Berliner Wasserwerkstatt

19 Work on Small Scale Systems SSS-Task Force Decentralised drinking water supply: POU & small systems Membrane systems MF, UF, NF, RO, ED Wells (without treatment) Water harvesting Boiling* Solar disinfection (heat only)* Solar disinfection (heat + UV)* Chemical disinfection (chlorine)* Coagulation / Filtration / Chlorination* Adsorption UV-LED Membrane and UV based disinfection systems Berliner Wasserwerkstatt Growing need for small scale systems not only in rural areas, also in fast growing urbanised aeas. No time and money for large scale solutions. Smart solutions using local water resources are needed. Example (choice of WHO for developing countries) : Boiling Solar disinfection by the combined action of heat and UV radiation (SODIS) Solar disinfection by heat alone UV disinfection with lamps Chlorination plus storage in appropriate vessel Combined systems on chemical coagulation-filtration and chlorine disinfection 19
