Our water glossary should be a small encyclopedia about water. Here you find explanations for terms and abbreviations, we used in our texts.
This water glossary is also available in French, German and Spanish.
Additionally it gives us space to talk about "niche-applications". This means topics, which are mentioned in the texts, but would have been distracting from the main topic.
If there are terms used in water treatment you don't find on our homepage, but you would like to have explained please don't hesitate to ask us.
