Together with partners involved in the technology development 3 case studies will be developed to show case successful application of developed technology on a full, drinking water production scale including: (a) adsorptive iron & manganese removal at the WTP Baqa (Jordan) that successfully provides drinking water to approx. 5,000 people in the refugee camp, (b) Full scale Arsenic removal plant based on IHE ADART technology in Jaber (north of Jordan that provide arsenic-free drinking water from arsenic contaminated aquifer to more than 12,000 people, and (c) Full scale Arsenic, ammonia and iron removal plant in the village of B. Vinogradi (Serbia) that provides arsenic-free water to approximately 3000 people.
