Due to the challenges of the climate change as well as energy and water scarcity, the development of advanced technical solutions under specific local boundary conditions becomes urgently necessary. The chair of environmental process engineering offers a new course focusing on sustainable solutions for energy generation and water desalination based on economic, ecologic and social dimension which has been developed with Jordanian and Tunisian universities. In addition, aspects and challenges in terms of integrated water resource management (IWRM), supply and demand, water quality and reuse are discussed.
The course includes a theoretical introduction for the conversion of renewable energies and design of desalination technologies. The participants will work on case studies in teams on a specific technology combination. They will conduct an own membrane experiment in the laboratory to find out parameters needed for the design of the desalination unit. The results will be presented in teams and discussed with all participants.
