Aquatech sessions: The Dutch approach to removal of micropollutants from municipal wastewater (live)

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. In this two-day event during the international Aquatech we present the approach and highlights of this innovative pilot research and the progress of full scale implementation.

> Watch the video's of all the presentations that were given during the Aquatech sessions

> Presentations are added to the programm below

At the Aquatech Expo, the Dutch Approach on reducing the discharge of micropollutants into surface water is presented. Through this program the implementation of full-scale installations to remove micropollutants is fast-tracked and innovations in technologies are subsidized. In this event the Dutch approach will be presented including  technological challenges on implementation and innovation of technologies. International collaboration is key in this approach: European programs will also be presented.

Concerning innovative technologies: the results of more than 15 technologies which are tested in the Netherlands on pilot scale and full-scale will be presented. These technologies are promising because of the expected reductions on CO2-footprint, costs or enhance the effluent quality in respect to proven technologies, now built in Europe.
