Uwe Hübner

Assistant Professor at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany

Uwe Hübner is leading the research group “Advanced Water Treatment” at the Chair of Urban Water Systems Engineering. He serves as a member of technical committees on oxidative treatment, ozonation and biological transformation from the German Water Chemistry Society and the German Water Association. Dr. Hübner is holding a master degree in Environmental Engineering from Technical University of Berlin and finished his Ph.D. in 2014 at the Chair of Water Quality Control at Technical University of Berlin, Germany. He published more than 20 peer-reviewed journal articles (H-Index: 12).


His main expertise is in the field of advanced water and wastewater treatment, especially to study and optimize oxidative (ozonation, advanced oxidation processes) biological (managed aquifer recharge, biofiltration) and sorptive processes and process combinations for the removal of emerging pollutants such as trace organic chemicals, pathogens and antibiotic microbial resistance.
