Brightwork Pilot Leeuwarden
Brightwork’s solution for micropollutants removal up for piloting Our solution for micropollutants removal from wastewater has recently been evaluated against the criteria of the Innovation Program Micropollutants of Stowa and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management in the Netherlands. With a positive result: we are now preparing to carry out a representative pilot, which will be extensively tested over the next 2 years. The core of the solution is the use of a continuous aerated filter with a filter media consisting of granular activated carbon. The aim is to allow adsorption and biological degradation to take place simultaneously. The
Full scale recovery plant
Efficient method for removal of aromatic carbons At soil remediation and drainages ground water may be contaminated with mono- and polycyclic hydrocarbons. These components are often present in concentrations which do not allow further processing unless the water is treated. An appropriate solution is required to handle this. Familiar treatment methods apply the use of activated carbon. This generates a downside: after saturation the carbon is to be regenerated or to be wasted. Biological degradation in a continuous moving bed media filter is successfully applied to convert both mono-cyclic and poly-cyclic hydrocarbons into harmless components. The oxygen required for the

AquaTech Amsterdam 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
Coagulation – hydraulic flocculation – tilted plate separation of surface water for process water production
Is direct continuous filtration thé solution to treat surface water?   The straight answer is: no, not always, but sometimes it might be! If it is suitable it is a wonderfully simple process set-up: after feed strainers you apply a continuous sand filter with in inline feed dosing of coagulants. The filter acts as a flocculator and a floc separator, resulting in a stable high quality filtrate.   But how do we know when this is feasible? We tried to offer you some guidance.   For surface water treatment the solids loading to the filter is based upon variable feed
Continuous filter plant
As a matter of urgency… Do you know this feeling, when you are faced with a problem in your water or waste water treatment plant which cannot wait to be solved, as it is directly impacting your businesses?  The stress, once you are being told any remedies might take weeks, even months? We have come across these emergency situations and were lucky to offer our clients temporary solutions. For this we are using our rental fleet, which is composed of numerous water treatment plants of various capacities. It will normally fit any request for immediate treatment capacity. As we know
