Outreach: SUPERCOL exhibit at Dutch Design Week 2023 (DDW23)

Water quality is essential for a healthy environment for humans, animals and ecosystems. Unfortunately, the water quality in the Netherlands is the worst in Europe. The Water Framework Directive (WFD) is a European law aimed at improving water quality in Europe. It looks like the Netherlands is not on track to meet the WFD goal for 2027.

Watermonitor is a biosensor that monitors water surface quality. You can think of biosensors as super detectives that, at a minuscule level, can quickly detect substances such as drugs, heavy metals and industrial waste in the water. Completely self-sufficient, they continuously provide real time data. This allows us to constantly monitor the quality of our water, enabling quick action when necessary.

How does it work? A small amount of water is fed into the sensor device. The sensor components are designed to detect micropollutants. Their presence causes a change in the movement of the particles, which is then recorded as a signal. To increase sensitivity, thousands of particles are available in the sensing chamber, enabling accurate detection of micropollutants.
