Ecotox Centre at WWTP Neugut Open Day
How can water animals teach us about the quality of surface waters? This and other questions could be answered at an open day at the WWTP Neugut in Dübendorf on September 6, 2014. The WWTP Neugut celebrated the opening of Switzerland's first full-scale ozonation facility for the removal of micropollutants from already cleaned wastewater. The Ecotox Centre, together with Eawag, accompanies this upgrade. The Centre uses a variety of bioassays to investigate the influence of water chemistry on the removal of micropollutants and the effectiveness of various biological treatment methods.
