The President of the Syndicat Mixte d’Assainissement des Sablons (SMAS), M. Alain Letellier presided at the ceremonial laying of the first stone at Fleury wastewater treatment plant recently (October 2018). The patented Nereda® technology will be installed at the new plant at Fleury, which when complete will provide cost-effective and sustainable wastewater treatment for 14 municipalities situated around Fleury (France).
The official ceremony was also attended by Patrick Billette, Managing Director of Sources and Project Manager Constance Menahem. Sources, which is leading the construction of the new treatment works, was looking for a modern, very compact and integrated wastewater treatment solution to introduce into the French market.
The award-winning Nereda technology perfectly meets SMAS’s requirements. It purifies wastewater without chemicals and within a small footprint, by deploying aerobic granular sludge. The completed layout minimises the plant’s impact on the rural landscape, with the incorporation of a green roof and an architecture that blends in sympathetically with the surrounding countryside environment.
Royal HaskoningDHV's Nereda wastewater treatment solution is already being applied on five continents for municipal and industrial water. The award-winning technology was invented by Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and developed in public-private partnership by the university, the Dutch Foundation for Applied Water Research, the Dutch Water Authorities and Royal HaskoningDHV.
