Established in 1924 and based in the UK, Hanovia is a world leader in UV disinfection technology with operations in the United States and China and a world-wide network of distributors. Part of the Halma group for the past 30 years, Hanovia designs, develops and manufactures UV lamps and advanced UV systems for the non-chemical treatment of water in a range of industrial and leisure applications. Hanovia is not only responsible for coordinating the Eco-UV project, but will also integrate the new lamp and driving electronics into fully functional systems, both for testing and evaluation studies and to demonstrate the new technology to the market.
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology pools its three core tasks of research, higher education and innovation in a mission. With about 9,300 employees and 25,000 students, KIT is one of the largest institutions of research and higher education in natural sciences and engineering in Europe.
KIT - The Research University in the Helmholtz Association.
The Light Technology Institute, founded in 1922, is part of the electrical engineering faculty, and will bring its expertise in all aspects of innovative lighting technology to bear in developing the new technology needed for the Eco-UV lamps and driving electronics.
Deutscher Verein des Gas- und Wasserfaches, the German Gas and Water Association, was founded in 1859 as an independent, non-profit, scientific-technical association, with the objective of advancing the gas and water supply industry. TZW, the Water Technology Centre, provides applied research and testing services to the water sector as part of DVGW, with activities covering all aspects of water supply. TZW will be responsible for rigorously testing the demonstration systems produced during the Eco-UV project against industry standards, to prove the technology in preparation for its introduction to the market.
Established in 1966, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute is an independent, non-profit organisation, owned by a foundation jointly established by the Swedish Government and Swedish industry. It undertakes research projects and contract assignments throughout the entire spectrum of environmental issues, with resource-efficient products and waste being one of six major theme areas. Drawing on this expertise, IVL will be responsible for carrying out a thorough life cycle assessment of the technology developed during Eco-UV to compare its economic and environmental impact with that of current UV systems.
