Cities worldwide are facing an increasing water crisis caused by water scarcity, aging infrastructure, delayed investments, and inflexible end- of-pipe solutions. One option to overcome this crisis are distributed and decentralized systems, such as Point-of-entry (POE) treatment, that can provide water quality tailored to local needs.

The main objectives of this research are to:
• Study the feasibility to apply nanofiltration (NF) and a UV-based advanced oxidation process (AOP) as a multi-barrier POE water treatment for potable reuse.
• Investigate the treatment efficiency and long-term performance of individual treatment steps of the system.
• Verify viability of treatment combination and sequence by testing a bench-scale hybrid treatment system operating continuously at different operational conditions and feed water qualities.
• Select and integrate appropriate sensors for quality assurance and proper performance.
