DVGW Research Centre TUHH
The DVGW (German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water) Research Centre at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) is one of three official water research institutions run by the DVGW. It is affiliated with the University’s Institute of Water Resources and Water Supply. This affiliation means that both institutions benefit from collaboration between experts as well as shared use of analysis equipment and laboratories. Our combination of academic education and practical application provides a basis for problem solving and technical innovation.
The research conducted at the DVGW Research Centre is linked to current practice. The centre provides advice to water companies and industrial corporations. Its research areas range from water collection to water treatment and distribution. They include, among others, the optimisation of water treatment processes, hygiene issues concerning water distribution, and energy efficiency. A key area of our work is the North German water supply and its particular conditions.
Providing scientific consultation, the DVGW-Research Centre TUHH is a field office of the Water Technology Centre (TZW) in Karlsruhe. The centre has close professional links with other important water research institutions in Germany, such as the DVGW Research Centre at the Engler-Bunte Institute of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the IWW Water Centre in Mülheim/Ruhr and the Water Innovation Centre based at the Technical University (TU) in Berlin. We also work closely with the DVGW North Germany Group regarding the North German water supply.
