Merle de Kreuk in SNB.circulair over rioolwaterzuiveringsslib
Nu de verwerkingscapaciteit van rioolslib in Nederland haar grenzen bereikt, steekt de discussie over toepassing van rioolwaterzuiveringsslib in de landbouw binnen Europa met enige regelmaat de kop op. De regelgeving in Nederland is duidelijk, rioolwaterzuiveringsslib mag niet in de landbouw gebruikt worden. Veel landen in Europa kijken hier anders tegenaan.

IWA Project Innovation Award 2018
Waternet, the public water utility of Amsterdam, wants to operate climate neutrally in 2020: no greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Energy recovery from the water cycle has a huge potential to contribute to this ambition: the recovered energy is an alternative for fossil fuel. An innovative option is thermal energy recovery from drinking water.

Most wanted: wastewater
Technology such as MRI helps us to understand the processes that take place in biomass when we purify waste water with micro-organisms. We can use this knowledge to extract more energy and resources (and new pollution) from our own waste water. But we also need new knowledge to tackle problems in the rapidly expanding world cities, where waste water purification is often a relatively new concept. We can and must get much more out of our waste water. This is argued by Professor Merle de Kreuk, who will give her inaugural address at TU Delft on Wednesday, 23 May.

Safe drinking water for all with smart, new drinking water technologies
Access to safe drinking water is a global challenge, particularly affecting the rural poor in developing countries. This urgent problem requires new, smart solutions for the removal of a wide range of contaminants of global concern, such as arsenic, fluoride, pathogens and antibiotic resistant genes.
