Overview of the applied evaluation approaches in selected WavE projects

ProjectSubject of evaluation ‘What is evaluated?’Valuation method ‘How does the evaluation work?’User ‘Who evaluates for whom?’
 Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) treatment and other bath treatment (dip-paint coating in serial automotive painting) Life cycle assessment/life cycle impact assessment (LCA/LCIA), total cost of ownership, stakeholder analysis Technology developers, plant manufacturers and plant operators 
 Process alternatives for the treatment of concentrates from water reuse Material balances, energy balances, LCA (Inter)national industrial companies 
 Modular treatment plants for water reuse Multi-criteria benefit analysis (Inter)national industrial companies, plant operators, technology manufacturers, water and wastewater associations, water/health/environmental authorities, agricultural associations 
 Modular concept for sustainable water treatment using capacitive deionisation Multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) in the form of a utility analysis Plant operators, technology manufacturers, potential funding agencies 
 Modular process chains for wastewater treatment and treatment for reuse Parallel application and comparison of extended cost–benefit analysis, LCA and multi-criteria assessment Industrial park and plant planners and operators 
 Single and combined desalination processes (using the example of the steel industry) Multi-criteria decision analysis with weighting based on expert interviews and LCA Plant operators, technology manufacturers, (inter)national industrial companies, industry and plant planners
