IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste, and raw materials management, takes place every two years in Munich. As already in 2016, the Electrochemistry research group was present this year with their own booth in the innovation sector at the centre of the fair.
Besides providing information about the interdisciplinary work areas of the institute, this year an exhibit drew the attention of the audience especially to the expertise in the area of electrochemical water treatment.
The week-long presence at the fair provided the opportunity to establish a multitude of new contacts with industry and academics. Furthermore it became clear that the focus of the Electrochemistry group on removal of trace substances from process water and sewage is one of the future-oriented topics of the water sector.
