University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE)
The Centre for Water and Environmental Research (ZWU) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) will contribute to all work packages of the project. UDE will lead action 5 of WP2 which deals with the exchange of best practice for innovation support. In WP3, UDE will focus on the optimizing of metal leaching from waste (bioleaching, investigated by the working group of Professor Dr. Martin Denecke, Urban Water and Waste Management). The results will contribute to the set-up and construction of demonstration processes (action 9) and to the operation of a pilot plant (action 10), and finally in downstream processing (action 11).
