The objective of the NaDWa-project carried out by a French-German consortium is the development of an advanced mobile nanoparticle trace sensor to be used for real time membrane integrity monitoring with regard to nanoparticles of 20 nm size and for filtrate quality management in membrane plants.

Based on Laser Induced Breakdown Detection (LIBD) technique, the instrumentation will exclusively be designed and optimised for conditions required for mobilization and measurements in water works, where TZW will test and qualify it.
