Project

Effects from centralised drinking water softening in industry

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Several Danish utilities are currently implementing central drinking water softening, which has a number of positive effects in households due to reduced problems with lime scaling and consumption of soap and detergents.

The Greater Copenhagen utility, HOFOR, is implementing drinking water softening at their waterworks during the next years. As part of the implementation, HOFOR has identified a number of industries in their supply area that will be affected by centralised softening in different ways. This can be in terms of higher water prices, varying water quality, interference with the industry’s own water treatment system etc.

This project will continue this work and aims at increasing the understanding of how industries are affected by centralised water softening. Activities may include interviews with industries affected by drinking water softening, literature review and laboratory experiments,  depending on your interests.

The project is carried out in collaboration with HOFOR.
