Water and wastewater treatment

Services for the water sector

We optimise, design and scale-up water and wastewater treatment processes using very realistic computer models.
Using 'what-if scenario' testing we vary operational and design parameters.

Process scale-up

Accelerated scale-up


“We started testing AM-TEAM’s recommendations right after the project. Their modelling gave us the insights we needed, to have enough confidence in a possible positive outcome of the tests.”

Dr. Stefan Weijers, Manager policy and innovation wastewater, Waterboard De Dommel (Netherlands)
