removal of micropollutants

Workshop: Dutch Innovation on Micropollutants from Municipal Wastewater

7 November 2019
10:00 - 15:45 hrs
Hall 13 Future Water Theatre

Since 2018 the Dutch Water Partners are researching innovative technologies for removal of micropollutants. This research is carried out within an extensive programme, which is initiated and managed by STOWA and the Ministery of Infrastructure and Water.

At the Aquatech Expo, the first results from this programme will be presented. This programme focusses on feasibility of technologies, which are on the verge of break-through. Key information on 20 selected technologies has been collected and judged by more than 100 Dutch water professionals. For this purpose sometimes also labresearch has been carried out. In this programme not only design parameters are reviewed, but also key-information on expected effluent quality, CO2 footprint and costs. This information on performances is determined in a standard way for all technologies. In this way technologies can be easily compared and decisions on which technologies are further researched in pilot experiments, can be made responsibly.

This event consists of several one hour thematic sessions. Results of feasibility studies are presented and compared. Of course there will be ample room for discussions of the results with the audience.

10.45 - 11.45 Theme 1: Oxidation (Ozonation and UV/H202)

11.45 - 12.45 Theme 2: Filtration & Re-use of Wastewater

13.45 - 14.45 Theme 3: Adsorption through New Materials

14.45 - 15.45 Theme 4: Activated Carbon Adsorption

You are welcome to join one or more of these one hour sessions for free. Walk-ins are welcomed as long as there are non-reserved seats available. Admittance to the Theme Sessions is not allowed after start-up. To guarantee your seat at one of the theme sessions please register.

STOWA (Acronym for Foundation for Applied Water Research) is the knowledge centre of regional water managers in the Netherlands. Its mission is to develop, collect, distribute and implement applied knowledge, which the water managers need in order to adequately carry out the tasks that their work supports. This expertise can cover applied technical, scientific, administrative-legal or social science fields.
