Publicaties

Aquafin is voortdurend op zoek naar nieuwe methoden en technologieën die waterbeheer in al zijn facetten duurzamer en efficiënter kunnen maken. Hier vind je een greep uit de publicaties die de onderzoekers van Aquafin over de voorbije jaren publiceerden.

Materiaal nodig voor je thesis of eindwerk?

Je klopt aan bij de bron. Aquafin voert namelijk elke dag onderzoek rond de meest duurzame technieken om afvalwater te transporteren en zuiveren. We kijken ook naar de impact van hemelwater en streven ernaar om het zoveel mogelijk in de publieke ruimte te integreren.
