Pradip Saha (WUR): Combining different technologies for cleaningsaline wastewater with organic contamination: a step-by-step solution to the problem

A complex task, since single technologies didn’t do the job. Therefore, he combined three different technologies for an effective cleaning: oxidation to remove most organic compounds followed by the use of constructed wetlands to remove some remaining organics. The last step included salt removal by standard membrane desalination technology.
