INTRODUCTION

BY LUUK RIETVELD

 

From a mountain 50 km outside San José, the capital of Costa Rica, enjoying my sabbatical leave, is it good to reflect on the first three month of 2020. Who would have thought during the “vakantiecursus” on the 10th of January that the world could develop as it has been? We can say many things about the virus (and this is done sufficiently in the media and “on the street”), but for the moment we should live with it. At TU Delft life is now mostly virtual, with virtual PhD defences, virtual MSc thesis parties, and its practical problems: how to hand over the diplomas and how to examen large groups of students at a distance. Luckily, our department has extensive experience with digitalising education and with distant learning, which helps. Almost all education has thus continued, avoiding study delays for the student population. For some students, doing their thesis abroad, it has been a challenge to come back to the Netherlands, but, as far as I know, all of them have arrived safely with financial support of TU Delft. Further good to see that the Dutch water sector has been active with innovative research in these difficult times, as illustrated by the publication in Nature, with an important contribution of prof Gertjan Medema. And what about the “12 facts about COVID-19 virus in water”? Much of it you can find in this newsletter. We also introduce new staff members, like Riccardo Toarmina, who immediately explains you about innovative research linked to Artificial Intelligence in Urban Water Infrastructures.

If you are interested, you can find some pictures and more text on my weblog (click here!). More to come… and stay healthy!

PDENG PROGRAMME CONTINUES

 

A next group of trainees has reached the second year of the PDEng programme Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). This programme focuses on the development of innovations for the civil industry in PDEng projects by converting results from fundamental research into solutions for environmental and public transport issues. The projects that are being carried out by this group of PDEng trainees within the Sanitary Engineering, are about reuse and recovery of resources from waste water and rainwater capture treatment-storage solutions for urban areas with the BlueBloqs system. In the project on recovery of C02 condensate from industrial waste water, technology developed by Sanitary Engineering is used as the basis for the design of a full scale system in large production plant of nitrogen fertilizers and industrial chemicals.
