Wastewater is a key feature of public concern, especially with increased issues related to water availability, sanitation, health and sustainability. Inappropriate use and inadequate management of wastewater pose a huge threat to social welfare and ecosystems. In rural and peri-urban areas, decentralisation appears as a logical and sustainable solution to tackle wastewater management issues, as these systems treat and dispose relatively small volumes of wastewater, originating from single households or dwellings located in relatively close proximity with focus on the extraction of nutrients and energy, and reuse of wastewater streams.
RUVIVAL – Sustainable Rural Development and highly productive New Towns is concerned with restoring degraded areas and creating new not just inhabitable, but liveable spaces. It is an e-learning project of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) in cooperation with the Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU).
