Convincing with foundation
The Rivierenland Water Board wanted to optimise sludge processing in a part of its catchment area with a central sludge processing facility. Iv-Water made the preliminary design for this, whereby sludge is pre-treated based on thermal pressure hydrolysis. Extensive consideration was given to achieving minimal environmental impact, effective integration into the landscape and the guaranteeing of (external) safety. Because the land-use plan did not provide scope for the intended facility, Iv-Water drew up a plan in which the effect of central sludge processing on the environment and society was made transparent.
