The 13th Aachen’s Conference on Water Technology (13. ATW) took place with more than 400 registered participants on October 29-30, 2019. Scientists, engineers, plant manufacturers, representatives of (waste) water boards and of regulatory authorities meet here biannually in order to discuss technical solutions for water purification and waste water treatment.

As in the past, we were able to attract well-renowned scientists and authority spokesman like Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Wintgens (FHNW Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz, Swiss) and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Paetzel (president DWA Deutsche Vereinigung für Wasserwirtschaft, Abwasser und Abfall e.V., Germany). All the speakers presented their latest technological developments and operational experiences from full-scale plants at the conference. The discusses processes including membranes, adsorption, oxidation and their combinations represent the solutions tackling current challenges of water and wastewater treatment: resource recovery, industrial and local circular water economy, as well as the elimination of micro pollutants and microplastics. A trade exhibition with leading companies of the water sector framed the conference and enabled inspiring discussion. With more than 400 participants from 10 nations the Aachener Tagung is the largest German-speaking, process engineering conference in the water sector.

The Aachener Verfahrenstechnik, Chair of Chemical Process Engineering (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wessling) and the Institute of Sanitary Environmental Engineering (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Pinnekamp) at the RWTH Aachen University co-organized the 13th Aachen’s Conference on Water Technology. Therewith, we can now look back on a successful 20 year history of Aachener Tagung.

The 14th Aachen’s Conference on Water Technology will take place in Eurogress Aachen on October 12-13, 2021. We are looking forward to your active participation.
