New micropollutants removal technologies investigated

The Dutch Water Partners are implementing and researching technologies for removal of micropollutants from municipal wastewater. This research is carried out within extensive programs, which are initiated by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and managed by STOWA and the national Water Authorities.

Aquatech Event covering micropollutant removal

At the 2021 Aquatech Exhibition in Amsterdam you are invited at a two-day’s event covering micropollutant removal from waste water. Be updated about all the innovative pilot research projects, which have been developed. Presentations will address the progress of full scale implementation projects. You will get all the latest information about  various technologies, which may be used to remove micropollutants. Ozone treatment, granular and powdered activated carbon technologies, filtration and adsorption techniques are used. You will learn how these technologies score on high micropollutant removal efficiencies, reduction of ecotoxicity, low carbon footprints and specific costs. You will not only be updated about single treatment technologies, but also discover new  water factory strategies. This water factory approach is highlighting completely new fully integrated waste water treatment processes. Also you will be informed about water refinery concepts, combining the production of good quality effluent and – at the same time – the recovery of resources.

Biologically activated GAC continuous filtration

Brightwork is one of the presenters in this event. You will hear more about the features of biologically activated granular activated carbon (GAC) continuous filtration for micropollutant removal. This technology is useful for both existing and new continuous filter plants to effectively remove micropollutants. The core of the technology combines adsorption and biodegradation within the reactor. As a result the granular activated carbon may be used for a longer period of time before it needs to be regenerated. Simultaneously we are focusing upon removal of soluble phosphorus by dosing coagulants in the feed to the filter. With the aim to meet KRW guidelines for total-phosphorus concentrations in the final effluent.


Let’s meet!

We very much recommend this event which is scheduled for November 3 and 4th at Aquatech Expo RAI, Atrium entrance L. The event is free for Aquatech visitors.
