Theme 3 - Taking Actions
SINTEF Water and environment would like to join a consortium and contribute with water treatment expertise to cope with the issues emphasised by the call. We have laboratories for testing, and we can also evaluate solutions with respect to environmental impacts (LCA) and cost (LCC) as well as to overall sustainability.
