Arçelik is looking for partners with whom it can work:
Majority of the domestic wastewater as known as ‘grey water’ comes from the households such as washing machine and dishwashers that are our daily lives now. However, it is hard to say that the waste of these households are totally covered since they include countless type contaminants from organic to biological and many by-produtcs and emerging micro-pollutants as well. This leads to a full characterization when it comes to an effective treatment which is inevitable for protecting environment, especially marine and aquatic life since they are under the direct risk of their discharge with the lack of sufficient treatment.
As Arçelik (BEKO) , one of the largest household production company of Europe, we believe it is necessary first to characterize the waste of these waste formed by our products, draw a complete picture of the environmental risk due to household waste and then contribute to develop the treatment techniques for special contaminates. Especially the ones which hold the major risk to human health and environment should be the priority.
Our aim would be:
1- Characterize household (laundry or dishwasher) wastewater quality,
2- Risk assessment of based on the characterization,
3- Investigate novel/hybrid treatment techniques to improve wastewater quality.
