Water Engineering Innovation

Welcome to the Water Engineering Innovation (WEI) Lab, led by Dr. Zongsu Wei, at Aarhus University. The WEI Lab has focused on developing advanced treatment processes to purify water and promote water safety. The primary goal of WEI Lab is to augment the nexus of water-environment by inventing novel design technologies in the principle of sustainability.

Current research includes:

  • set up new radical-based advanced oxidation technologies (AOTs) to remove emerging contaminants (ECs) from water;
  • integrate AOTs with biotechnology for persistent ECs control;
  • develop predictive models for various biological & physicochemical endpoints; and
  • design novel materials and processes for improved water treatment and safety control.
