Lecture on the current topic:
Decentralized storm water treatment in times of climate change and microplastics
Urban flash floods, the progressive sealing of soils and anthropogenic pollution such as microplastics urgently require alternative solutions in the field of precipitation water treatment. Local treatment and infiltration help to relieve hydraulically loaded combined sewer systems and to take targeted action at the point of pollution. Decentralised rainwater treatment plants can offer an alternative. In Germany, but also in other countries, requirements are therefore already being placed on these systems and tested under laboratory conditions. The lecture shows the current problems, gives an overview of the different treatment systems and their possible applications, and presents the test requirements and the tests.
