Flows of Science: Source Separation Technology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag), 1992-2017

Keogh, Luke

Flows of Science charts the history of source separation technology at Eawag from 1992 to 2017. Compiled from interviews with scientists and focus groups and nearly 30 hours of recording it is an intimate story of scientists at work. Starting with the early influence of sustainable development, and proceeding through projects such as Novaquatis, STUN, VUNA and Blue Diversion, the report charts the pioneering role that Eawag has played in developing source separation.

One of the most compelling streams of this story is the journey that source separation technologies needed to take in order to achieve prominence. From Switzerland to Nepal, then on to Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, source separation technology travelled the world. It has now arrived back at Empa and Eawag’s NEST building in Duebendorf, Switzerland, and offers new approaches to the Swiss urban water sector. The report shows that to deliver source separation technology as an innovative new approach to urban water management took teams of people working together over decades.
