Find out, how water is treated – video

Our new video was released! Find out, how drinking water is treated with the use of our pilot-plant installed at the Drinking Water Treatment Plant (DWTP) in Kutná Hora. The pilot-plant enables optimization of water treatment parameters in a continuous flow regime and bigger volumes than it is possible in a laboratory, where standard jar […]

Water treatment: Why is AOM hard to remove?

Researchers from the Institute of Hydrodynamics, CAS, have revealed that the cause of low removal efficiency of AOM (Algal Organic Matter) originating from the green algae and cyanobacteria is low-molecular substances mostly of non-protein character. The research results have been published in the renowned Journal of Environmental Sciences. Due to eutrophication (enrichment of water with […]
