The Chair of Urban Water Systems Engineering at the Technische Universität München (TUM) is involved in research related to fate and transport of chemical and microbial contaminants of concern in conventional wastewater treatment as well as advanced water treatment. Herein, a particular focus lies on processes including ozone, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), electrochemical processes, activated carbon adsorption, and membrane filtration as well as natural treatment processes (riverbank filtration, soil-aquifer treatment) commonly in the context of indirect potable reuse applications. The microbiological laboratory of the institute is equipped to conduct traditional microbial as well as biomolecular studies (using culturing techniques, confocal laser scanning microscopy, FISH, DGGE, qPCR, high-throughput phylogenetic and metagenomic analysis). The institute is equipped with spacious testing facilities to investigate treatment processes at laboratory-, pilot- or demonstration-scale.
