BERLIN, Germany, July 31, 2006 -- The European cluster "MBR-Network," group of four projects financed by the European Commission and entirely dedicated to the development of the membrane bioreactor technology, has launched their official website ""www.mbr-network.eu".
The four projects, namely AMEDEUS, EuroMBRra, MBR-Train and PuraTreat are supported by three different financial instruments set up by the European Commission within the sixth Framework Program, and are implemented in parallel from October 2005 up to December 2009. They will perform research, development, capacity building and technological transfer in regards to this promising wastewater treatment process.
Around 50 European and international companies and institutions are actively involved in these four projects and will join their efforts and coordinate their actions within the cluster "MBR-Network." The four projects amount to a total budget of ca. EUR15 million, for which ca. EUR9 million will be financed by the European Commission.
The website "www.mbr-network.eu" is one task initiated by the projects AMEDEUS and EUROMBRA but it will not only provide detailed information on projects of the European cluster. It is in addition thought and designed as a communication and exchange platform dedicated to the worldwide MBR-community, which offers contacts to a large group of international MBR professionals and experts. In particular, the following free services are offered online:
• Data-base of companies and institutions active in the MBR field
• Data-base of articles, books and conference proceedings related to MBR
• Data-base of other European projects involved with MBR
• List of international conferences, symposiums or seminars addressing the MBR topic
• Virtual discussion forum between members of the MBR-community
Companies, institutions or private persons interested by or active in the field of MBR technology are invited to register online and to provide their data and relevant news or information to the MBR community through this website.
