Our team is based in Deggendorf and consists of two graduates and one student of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT), all trained in the field of environmental engineering. Raphael started in 2013 by implementing the aquaba project in Deggendorf, developed the first prototypes and made an experimental study of the transport coefficient in thermal membrane distillation for his master thesis. Niclas joined the team in 2016 for his bachelor thesis about the retaining of bacteria during the process of thermal membrane distillation and is currently writing his master thesis. In 2017 Christoph joined the team and made a feasability study and market analysis for our solar desalination module in his master thesis. Since 2018 we have our own office at the DIT and work full time on our project.
