"Eco Economy" evolution towards "Future Economy

Generate energy from waste water

Hospitals not only have a high water consumption, but the use of drugs also contaminated wastewater with active ingredients. Drugs are readily soluble in water and so far more than 150 drugs were detected in lakes and rivers. Researchers at the Bauhaus University Weimar in Germany constructed a new wastewater system that not only reduces residues of drugs, but also generates energy.
