The most important research activities are currently:
Sanitation in extreme environments
Planning and operation of wastewater treatment facilities and systems (energy analysis, improvement of company organisations, optimisation of processes and cleaning performance)
Integrated sanitation systems based on material-flows and value added resource utilisation
