  • Separate Collection of Iodinated X-ray Constrast Media in Hospitals (RKM)

    Feasibility study

    In Berlin’s water bodies, high concentrations of AOI have been detected resulting from the discharge of iodinated X-ray contrast media (RKM) which are used for X-ray examinations in both hospitals and medical offices. These substances are almost completely excreted within 24 hours via the patient’s urine. These polar, strongly hydrophilic and persistent substances are emitted via wastewater treatment plants into the surface waters where they have been detected already. Considering the…

  • Complex Resource Evaluation and Analysis Methodology (CREAM)

    A Groundwater Management Tool for Berlin

    Summary The scope of the project Complex Resource Evaluation and Analysis Methodology (CREAM) is to identify and demonstrate the tools necessary for responsible groundwater management. The first stage of the CREAM project demonstrates the techniques used by the Berliner Wasserbetriebe (BWB) and Veolia Water (formerly Vivendi Water) for the successful and sustainable management of groundwater resources in Berlin. Berlin has a comprehensive and current data set, spanning many years of groundwater…
