The free technical workshop will present the outcomes of the ENREM demonstration project. This project, supported by the EU-Life program, was conducted by the Berlin Centre of Comptence for Water together with Berliner Wasserbetriebe and Anjou Recherche – Veolia Water. Four invited projects on the use of membrane technologies for decentralised applications will be also presented.
