Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), Germany:
The TUHH is one of the youngest universities in Germany as well as one of the most successful. The TUHH plays an important role in the scientific community on a national and international scale. Furthermore, the Institute of Wastewater Management is concerned with a large range of research and implementation projects in the field of domestic and industrial wastewater management. The main focus of the work is on source-separation sanitation concepts for the different climatic and social conditions of the world allowing the efficient use of water and nutrients. The institute has been and still is involved in many national and European projects carrying out a variety of activities from lab experiments to the implementation of pilot projects and the development of training material. Through these activities the members of the institute could establish a broad network to other organizations and individuals active in the field of innovative and sustainable wastewater management all around the world. The Institute of Wastewater Management has extensive experience in research and education in the field of innovative wastewater management solutions. The Institute of Wastewater Management is active in the research on appropriate wastewater technologies for a variety of conditions. The particular focus is on resource-efficient technologies aiming at resource recovery. Furthermore, it is involved in a wide range of development and implementation activities aiming at the dissemination of source-separating sanitation concepts (e.g. in Indonesia, Romania, Ukraine, Ethiopia).
Main role in the project
Scientific Project Management and Group leader of EG1 (Low cost sanitation technologies). TUHH was in charge of the development of the criteria for evaluation and systematisation of conventional and innovative low cost sanitation technologies (task 1.2), for the classification of typical settlings task in WP2, and for the assessment of innovative sanitation technologies (task 3.2). Additionally, TUHH designed and developed a Guide for Large Scale Planning and Implementation of Low Cost Sanitation Technologies in task 6.2. They gave a special contribution to the conception of recommendations for future research and technology developments (task 7.4). With the support of KNUST, TUHH published at least one article regarding the EG1, and with the support of TTZ, another one regarding WP4 (Assignation of appropriate low-cost technologies according to characteristics of typical settlings). They gave a seminar during the final NETSSAF Conference on the Strategy of Implementation: Manual for planning and implementation.
