The designs of an Archimedean screw pumps are as manifold and versatile as their tasks. In a full scale test, the differences between a polyethylen water lifting screw and a conventional steel water lifting screw is to be investigated. For this purpose, a support device for both designs will installed in a pilot trough at a technical hall at the BOKU University. The two designs are tested one after the other with pure water to identify the differences.

The main project goals are: (1) investigate and present the actual groundwater abstraction (wells and springs) in austria, (2) distinction between water use (3) informations on water treatment (4) quality control of the data obtained. Data acquisition is performed by a questionnaire survey based on the database "Wasserentnahmestellen" Which includes additional information depending on each federal province (Bundesland). The distinction in water-use is separated between - drinking-water supply - industry - agriculture The first project phase focuses on two to three federal provinces. Additionally the existing reporting system for water suppliers and industrial users will be presented.

The project faces the programme challenge of developing and implementing solutions for increasing energy efficiency and renewable energy use/production in public infrastructures. This issue is addressed by combining and integrating the relevant public infrastructures of municipal organic waste and of wastewater (2W PLANTS) and by upgrading their input mix and their energy output through: (I) the enrichment of the upstream supply chain providing compatibility with a wide biomass mix from agriculture, agro-food industry and public green; (II) strengthening the integration of internal processes for maximum energy efficiency and energy output (electricity, heat, biogas, bio-methane) to be consumed locally at the 2W PLANTs or fed into surrounding public/private grids or used in the public mobility infrastructures.
