Starting later this month, master students and teaching teams of professors and Ph.D. students in Germany and China will begin working directly with the water treatment and product solution experts at GF Piping Systems to research and develop new approaches for wastewater treatment applications specifically in China to increase efficiency and sustainability even further.
The project - funded by GF Piping Systems - will run over 10 months and focus on wastewater treatment applications for chemical processing, microelectronics and industrial production. It will use the Design Thinking approach, a core methodology for both organizations, in exploring current and anticipated customer needs with innovative solutions.
The efficient, safe, and sustainable treatment of industrial wastewater on a large scale is a main concern for China, home of the world's largest population and the world's second-largest economy. GF Piping System has been active in China since 1997 offering highly efficient water treatment solutions that can increase capacity by up to 50 percent even on the same footprint.
