In this context on April 26 the OWWZ together with the German Society for Membrane Technology e.V. (DGMT) and the Russian A.V. Topchiev Institute of Petrochemical Synthesis (TIPS) organized the Workshop - Cooperation in GreenTec with Eastern Europe in Hanover.
The thematic focus of the event was on Water Treatment including aspects like waste water, process engineering and waste water treatments.
Institutions and enterprises from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Germany presented their fields of work and are ready to discussed potential cooperation.
