New at Aquatech Amsterdam 2019, the outdoor demo lane!

Aquatech Amsterdam Daily News 3

Fancy a beer made out of rainwater? Would you like to see how pee turns into tea? The new Aquatech outdoor demo lane offers it all. Just outside at entrance K, exhibitors showcase their solutions for desalination, purification and re-use of water. Visit the ‘bathroom-container’ of Waternet, the water company for Amsterdam and surrounding area. Waternet demonstrates how they are closing the water cycle; from toilet and shower to phosphate, bio-gas, re-use etc.

Belgian company Hydrovolta showcases a hybrid solution for desalination that uses less energy, has a lower salinity discharge, lower chemical consumption and 50-70% water recovery. Their secret: a unique combination of electrodialysis, ultrasound technology (SonixED) and other membrane technologies (low pressure osmosis). Further down the demo lane, take a look inside the Mobile Ultrafiltration Unit of Logisticon Water Treatment. The system is capable of producing purified water with a capacity up to 200m3/h.

Nextdoor, Semilla Sanitation demonstrates how pee can be turned into tea. Semilla modules form a closed wastewater treatment unit, using advanced space technology to convert sanitary waste- water into clean water and fertilizers for food production. Conclude your visit with a beer made from rainwater at the Rain-Bar. Heavy shower = happy hour!”

Sjef Ernes receives Royal Decoration at Sarphati Symposium

Yesterday, Sjef Ernes (former managing director of the NGO Aqua for All) received the Royal Decoration of Knight in the Order of Oranje Nassau. Jack van der Hoek, Royal Commissioner for Noord Holland, praised the way Ernes has been a true champion for sanitation for many years. Under his leadership, Aqua for All supported hundreds of sanitation projects worldwide. “At least 4,5 million people gained access to basic sanitation thanks to your efforts”, said Van der Hoek. “I believe that everyone should have access to basic sanitation within ten years” reacted Ernes. I hope you will take up this challenge too and enjoy it!”
