Institute for Water Management and Eco-Technologies (IWO)

 

 

The Institute for Water Management and Eco-Technologies (IWO), founded in January 1994, serves the University of Applied Sciences Magdeburg-Stendal as a scientific institute belonging to the department of Water Management, Environmental, Civil and Safety Engineering. As a result, practice-oriented research topics in the broad fields of water management and recycling & waste disposal management play a central role. The founding of this institute made it possible to integrate the students in a variety of research activities with special emphasis placed on the interconnection between research and teaching.

Research

The focus of the institute's work lies in the interlinking of applied research and teaching. The focus on practice-oriented research tasks is at the centre of the water and environmental service projects.

Specialist field of flood risk management

Flood protection and the associated flood risk management is on of the most important tasks of water management. Approximately 5,000 fatalities and €46B of damaged due to hydrological events worldwide in alone 2016 are proof of the importance of this issue.

That is why the overriding goal of our research is to develop processes and tools which contribute to the improvement of flood protection and support sustainable flood risk management. Hydrology, statistics, hydrodynamics, consequences for the economy, critical infrastructure and people, reliability of constructions and the risks themselves are integrated into holistic approaches and tools.

Specialist Field of International Water Management

Environmental Engineering and International Water Management Task Force

Welcome to the environmental engineering and international water management task force. Together with national and international partners, our teaching and research focuses on projects dealing with sustainable development. Through the integration of a variety of disciplines and the close cooperation between interest groups and scientific experts, the task force contributes to practical solutions for environmental challenges including the interdisciplinary challenges of water management. Our fields of research are environmental engineering, water management, and recycling & waste disposal management (circular economy) – based on the Nexus approach.Environmental engineering: Combines engineering with ecology and holistic thinking to translate ecological principles into social and technical action. It includes the adaptation of construction techniques, circular economy approaches, material flow management, industrial ecology, energy cascades and spatial symbioses of material and energy consumers to support the creation of a sustainable society. Resource management strategies and environmental management systems are integral to the implementation of engineering ecology.

Internationale Wasserwirtschaft offers solutions for the sustainable exploitation of water and land resources for the purposes of food security, people’s livelihoods and the environment. Water management problems like flooding, water shortages, environmental pollution and ecological degradation can only be dealt with through a multidisciplinary approach. International water management combines engineering with the expertise of natural, social and political sciences to achieve these ends.

Cross-sector integration is achieved through a nexus approach which emphasizes the correlation and the interdependency of natural resources (water, soil, waste) as well as their transitions and flows over spacial scales and the borders of systems. The work group concentrates on the water-energy-food-nexus and water-soil-waste-nexus. Several components, including functionalities, productivity and management o

Scientific Management:

Specialist Field of Resource Management

The Specialist Field of Resource Management concentrates on the following research topics:

  • Determining the platinum content of membrane electrode units in fuel cells: exact knowledge of the platinum content of fuel cell membranes is of great importance for the preparation process and for calculating value creation. Due to the chemical composition, above all else the heightened fluorine load, the analysis and preparation is made especially difficult. The focus of the research project is the examination of the sampling process, sample preparation and analysis with regard to their appropriateness for determining the platinum content of the membrane electrode units.
  • Microwave assisted preparation of lignocellulosic residual materials in order to raise fermentability: an essential procedural step for the use of lignocellulosic residual materials, such as straw for the fermentation process is the substrate digestion. The goal is to reduce the degree of cellulosic crystallinity as well as the lignin content and to loosen the fiber composite in order to improve the enzymatic accessibility. In the research project the suitability of microwave-assisted catalytic substrate digestion will be considered.
  • Recycling carbon fiber reinforced plastics: Substituting conventional construction materials with carbon fiber reinforced plastics has become a means of increasing the efficiency of numerous systems. The aviation and automotive industries have been exemplary in already making use of these materials. However, these products will also need to be disposed of in the foreseeable future. Yet, with the exception of pyrolytic approaches, there are no material recycling processes to recover the expensive fibers, which are not optimal. The focus of the research project is therefore the search for suitable alternatives to material recycling processes.
