Running throughout Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW) from 30 October to 3 November 2017, Aquatech Amsterdam is set to be the leading trade exhibition for water technology and the largest meetup of water professionals in the world. Royal HaskoningDHV will be exhibiting at the show with a whole array of innovations from Nereda® to Aquasuite® and much more in our ‘House of Inspiration’.
Look out for our articles over the next few weeks, where we will focus on a different Royal HaskoningDHV product due to be featured at the exhibition. We have investigated Nereda and ALE extraction, along with our monitoring and control platform, Aquasuite. We have also examined sludge technologies, Ephyra® and Themista®. This time it is the turn of zero-waste crystallization technology Crystalactor. Learn how they all connect together to help us achieve a safe, clean and sustainable water future.
Recovering components from water and wastewater
The Crystalactor is a fluidised-bed type crystalliser for the selective removal and recovery of components from water and wastewater. Cost-effective, the process produces a reusable product, rather than chemical waste. The technology is suitable for both domestic and industrial applications, for water softening and recovery of phosphate, fluoride or precious heavy metals such as Nickel (Ni), Copper (Cu) and Tellurium (Te). Another proven technology, there are over 50 Crystalactor water treatment installations in operation or under construction across four continents already. Project Director Industrial Water Treatment Gerben van Ommeren explains: “Although the technology itself dates back to the 80’s, recent years have seen a revival of this technology. It looks like we were ahead of our time…. We are currently working not only on softening (traditional and in second pass RO configurations), but also on Fluoride and Phosphate removal pilots and projects.”
Making the connection is the focus of this year’s AIWW and we’d love to connect with you in our House of Inspiration, Hall 1, stand number 01.330. We will be showcasing our smart and circular water innovations:
- Sustainable wastewater treatment technology Nereda®: experience a virtual visit to worldwide Nereda plants in our playroom)
- Zero-waste crystallization technology Crystalactor
- Ephyra® and Themista® technologies for optimized sludge digestion
- Intelligent Aquasuite® solutions for advanced control in the water chain: watch an Aquasuite Smart Water demo every day at 15.00.
