Project Funding

Since Fall 2011 the implementation of the HAMBURG WATER Cycle® in the Jenfelder Au neighborhood received financial support from three sides. Besides funds from the EU LIFE+ Programme, the project also received funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as well as from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Each funding has a different focus. In addition to the support of  the planning and the construction of different innovative components, the development of innovative technology that guarantees a continuous optimization during operation is investigated. It is also intended to adapt the HWC concept for an application in different regions and changing conditions.
