Process measurement technology

Measurement technology is an important field and a wide range of problems faces the operators of water supply and wastewater treatment plants in this connection.

One major advantage of the Fraunhofer Water Systems Alliance is that its member Institutes specialize extensively in fields pertaining to measurement technology starting with biosensorics, on to microsystem technologies and nanotechnology, right up to the implementation of conventional physical and chemical measurement methods.

In our experience, it is not possible to manage the processes of water plants in an optimal fashion without an efficient in situ diagnosis of the complex water-chemical and biological processes involved.
