European project INTERREG 2 SEAS: DOC2C’S


LASIR laboratory is one of the five partnairs of the DOC2C’s project. This project is an extensive research programme of four years (2015-2019) to investigate the possibility of improved dissolved organic carbon (DOC) removal from source waters.
Partnairs : PWNT (lead partnair, NL), South West Water (UK), De Watergroep (Be), Technische Universiteit Delft (NL).

Research are supported by European Regional Development funds through Interreg 2 seas Programme.
