This cluster consists of a number of activities centered around water processing:

• Continuous sustainable gas and oil production requires adequate water treatment and focusses at the treatment of produced water and improved and enhanced oil recovery, overboard water, injection,….
• The treatment of salt containing process streams and mineral recovery for shale gas winning. This allows to comply with water regulations and requirements and to obtain a cost effective production of a clean water and sludge stream and a dry waste stream.

Themes currently being investigated are oil recovery and hydro carbides removal and minerals removal, removal of valuables from water based industrial process streams.
