Renewable energies for water treatment in Vietnam. HIW 1-6: Modular concept for sustainable treatment of arsenic affected and saline groundwater in Vietnam - WaKap
Presentation held at Vietnam International Water Week, VACI 2019. Water smarter - Leaving no one behind, 22-25 March, 2019, Hanoi, Vietnam
Increasing importance of water treatment and desalination for the provision of drinking water and industrial water can be observed on a global scale. Simultaneously, there is an increase in energy demand for associated processes. In Vietnam, insufficient or unreliable connection to the public power grid can be a problem in rural areas. Self-sufficient energy supply is often provided by diesel generators. This leads to higher pollutant emissions to the environment. More environmentally friendly and sustainable energy supply of water treatment plants can be realized on the basis of renewable energy sources.
