studied civil engineering, specializing in water, waste water and solid waste management.
He was a founder of Atterwasser GmbH, consultant of a firm en Lübeck, Germany, specializing in ecological sanitation and the computer simulation of waste water treatment plants.
In 1998 they designated him as the director of a municipal and industrial investigative institute of waste water management, and professor at TUHH
, Science University of Hamburg-Harburg
He is a professor and leader of waste water economics.
He is a technician in the field of municipal and industrial work at the University of Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH).
He is a member on the board of directors of ZERI Germany.
introduced the ZERI courses of international engineering masters, and is the promoter of creative thinking on the basis of a better understanding of physics.
is especially interested in the theoretical works of Victor Schauberger and Paul Schatz, and frequently undertakes great experiments in his
laboratories in Hamburg.
These experiments are a collaboration of researchers of the University of Stuttgart
and are focused on the vortices and their cleaning ability using the forces of gravity, pressure and the effects of water density at low temperatures.
