Our goal is to view wastewater holistically, therefore the field of wastewater management is characterized by its interdisciplinary character. Interfaces are to be seen here mainly between environmental engineering and microbiology. We want to investigate processes and interrelationships in natural and technical systems with the help of microbiological and molecular biological investigations and improve biological processes in their technical applications with regard to their stability and performance. For this purpose we accompany plants in the semi-technical area as well as in the laboratory scale by new microbiological and molecular biological methods.
