New technologies for removing micro-pollutants explored

The Dutch Water Partners implement and research technologies for the removal of micro-pollutants from urban wastewater. This research is carried out within extensive programmes initiated by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and managed by STOWA and the national water boards.

Aquatech event on the removal of micro-pollutants

At the 2021 Aquatech Fair in Amsterdam, you are invited to a two-day event on removing micro-pollutants from wastewater. Get informed about all innovative pilot research projects that have been developed. Presentations will focus on the progress of full-scale implementation projects. You will get the latest information on different technologies that can be used to remove micro-pollutants. Ozone treatment, granular and powdered activated carbon technologies, filtration and adsorption techniques will be used. You will learn how these technologies score on high removal efficiency of micro-pollutants, reduction of ecotoxicity, low carbon footprint and specific costs. You will not only be updated on individual treatment technologies, but also discover new water factory strategies. This water factory approach emphasises completely new, integrated wastewater treatment processes. You will also be informed about water refinery concepts, which combine the production of good quality effluent with - at the same time - the recovery of resources.

Biologically activated GAC continuous filtration

Brightwork is one of the presenters at this event. You will hear more about the properties of biologically activated granular activated carbon (GAC) continuous filtration for the removal of micro-pollutants. This technology is useful for both existing and new continuous filtration plants to effectively remove micro-pollutants. The core of the technology is a combination of adsorption and biodegradation in the reactor. This allows the granular activated carbon to be used for a longer period of time before it needs to be regenerated. At the same time, we focus on the removal of soluble phosphorus by dosing coagulants in the feed to the filter. The aim is to meet the WFD guidelines for total phosphorus concentrations in the final effluent.
