The project focuses on the application of continuous media filtration for primary treatment of (municipal) waste water. The target is to achieve multiple goals: a good separation efficiency, a compact installation and the possibility for resource recovery. The research is executed.
We are very pleased our research is supported By SNN and the European fund for regional development.
In a joined effort, Brightwork, and Fabiton developed the innovative EcoBlue filter. Together they now launch this new product.
Continuous sand filtration with high capacity
The EcoBlue filter is based on the well-known continuous sand filtration principle. In recent years, there has been a growing demand worldwide for compact and modular (waste)water treatment solutions. The EcoBlue filter is the answer to this need, since it is entirely comprised of prefab components which can be quickly assembled into a working system on site. By combining multiple filter cells into one unit, it is possible to create a high throughput of up to 500 m3/h.
Advantages of the EcoBlue filter
“The advantages are lower construction costs, short construction time, the optimal filter performance, lower carbon footprint and superior construction quality. Our partnership combines Brightwork’s process knowledge with Fabiton’s expertise in prefab concrete construction. It is an excellent match.”, according to Hans Wouters, CEO of Brightwork.
Moreover, the EcoBlue filter is compatible with the Sand-Cycle remote monitoring & control tool. This tool, developed by Brightwork, is based on RFID technology and enables remote monitoring and control to optimize the filter performance, and thus reducing operational costs. Various applications are possible: nutrient removal in wastewater treatment, surface water treatment and process water reuse.

Do you want to know what kind of projects Brightwork is working on? And what expertise and technologies we have for (waste)water treatment? And do you know how Sand-Cycle works?
Please visit Aquatech 2019 this week November 5-8th in Amsterdam RAI to get the answers. And meet the Brightwork team at the Holland Innovation Park! Brightwork is represented during Aquatech 2019, booth 11.404A, in the Holland Pavilion.
Of course there is time to have a little chat. Or to ask specific questions about current or future projects. Whatever the reason might be for your visit, our Brightwork and BW Products colleagues are looking forward to have you. They would like to share the latest developments in our company. Maybe you spotted an interesting subject recently on our blog or LinkedIn post and you want to know more about it. Then Aquatech 2019 is the perfect occasion to do so.
Sand-cycle receives positive feedback of researchers that have used Sand-Cycle in their pilot testing with continuous sand filtration at WwTW Gardermoen in Norway. They are enthusiastic about the use of this tool and reported their positive feedback.
International Water Association (IWA) publication
The research, executed on behalf of the Regional Research Council of the city of Oslo, focused upon nitrogen en phosphorus removal in a continuous sand filter after MBBR treatment. Very low effluent levels were consistently established; results have been published by IWA in the 80th Volume, Issue 2, of Water Science & Technology (see this link: https://doi.org/10.2166/wst.2019.266 to read the full article).
Robust and easy to use tool
The research team indicated Sand-Cycle to be a very convenient tool for monitoring good operating filter conditions. The results are reliable and, in addition, Sand-Cycle contributed to the quality and intensity of the research. Quick interventions were possible, once Sand-Cycle detected process anomalies, reducing valuable research off-time. These positive experiences with Sand-Cycle confirm what other users already have experienced. Sand-Cycle frequently receives positive feedback from other (inter)national references.
The Sand-Cycle dashboard below clearly illustrates the recorded distinction between a good and bed performing filter. The scatter between the average and the standard deviation values indicates the homogenity level of the system. Greater spread (thicker band) implies that few parts of the filters flow significantly faster or slower. This case of thick band also depicts relatively lower performance level of the filter.
