Generating energy and recovering raw materials
Protecting the environment, achieving cost savings, generating energy, and recovering raw materials – these are the goals of a joint project undertaken by Attero and Aa & Maas Water Board. Together they treat wastewater and produce green energy at the Land van Cuijk treatment plant in Haps. A new installation has been realised here, using a unique combination of technologies to purify concentrated wastewater streams. This approach has yielded immediate environmental benefits: biogas is used more efficiently and emissions have been reduced. Iv-Water analysed the various options and applications, assessing their economic feasibility as well as various sustainability aspects.
