CoRe Water: from WWTP to a sustainable water factory


“Scarcity of water is a key driver for reuse of wastewater in many places around the world. Meanwhile, current wastewater practice is challenged to improve on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, removal of organic micro-pollutants (including pharmaceuticals) and on recovery potential of valuable compounds. This is where the CoRe Water concept comes in: Concentration, Recovery and Reuse. The challenge in this project is to work on both sustainability and cost-effectiveness of sewage treatment and on better effluent quality (read romoval of organic micro-pollutants (OMP; including pharmaceuticals), nitrogen and phosphate). With the innovative purification concept CoRe Water wastewater is first concentrated before it is futher treated.. In this way, sewage water can be efficiently and efficiently purifies with a higher purification efficiency (N, P & OMP) & optimal recovery of resources such as nutrients, energy and especially water: from wastewater treatment plant to sustainable water factory.”
