Tightening ef uent consents due to river water quality drivers require further investment for improved removal of nitrogen and phosphorus from Wastewater Treatment Plants (WwTP). As a result, tertiary treatment processes have become increasingly important. Read more….
Delfland’s Water Authority is developing a fresh water factory to improve the bathing water quality of the Krabbenplas, a local water body. Therefore tertiary ozone treatment in combination with continuous sand filtration is projected at wastewater treatment plant De Groote Lucht near Vlaardingen, the Netherlands. The existing continuous sand filter plant, with a design capacity of 1 […]
Stijn de Boer, 21 years old and live in the beautiful city of Leeuwarden. As a child, I have always been on and around the water and this has sparked my interest in this field. In high school, I discovered that Chemistry and Physics interested me very much and were well suited, so I wanted […]
IVL published results of full-scale trials for micropollutant removal at Stengarden wastewater plant.
The Swedish Environmental Research Institute IVL Svenska Miljöinstitutet recently published the results of extensive trials at a full scale tertiary DynaSand filter plant at Stengarden wastewater plant, operated by Simrishamns kommun in South-East Sweden. The research was a joined effort by IVL, Simrishamn Kommun, Xylem Inc., Nordic Water Products and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.The plant consists of both sand and granular […]
During the upcoming Welsh Water Innovation Event (October 29th 2020) Brightwork’s CEO Hans Wouters and BW Products’ team will demonstrate Sand-Cycle technology, applied in various continuous tertiary sand filter plants, by showing remote real-time performance data from one of the larger tertiary filter plants for nitrogen and phosphorus removal in Europe. Moreover we are delighted to give […]

Brightwork BV recently started to refurbish existing continuous sand filters, which to date underperformed.After a survey using our Sand-Cycle remote monitoring tool, a refurbishment plan has been composed in close collaboration with Nijhuis UK for Welsh Water. Field work has recently started by our process engineers Freerk and Chantal, aiming for completion of the works within the next months.
Annual savings on sludge handling costs have been confirmed in an eight months full scale trial Sneek, the Netherlands The pilot program at WwTW Halsteren, a low-load biological treatment plant in the Netherlands, resulted in a 25% reduction in WAS (Waste Activated Sludge) production, from 200 ton dry solids per annum to 155 ton dry […]
The Dutch Association Innovative Medicines (VIG), the Dutch Generic and Biosimilar Medicines Association (BOGIN), the European Water Stewardship (EWS) and AMR Insights have taken the initiative to establish this Consortium with the aim to support technological solutions and innovation capacity to reduce emissions from antibiotic waste streams. The Consortium targets hospitals, waste water treatment plants and manufacturing plants within […]
Sand-Cycle is used as a powerful real-time tool in continuous sand filters to watch the filter performance and to optimize the process. The Sand-Cycle remote RFID monitoring portal has now been extended with an API access. This allows our customers to integrate the Sand-Cycle output into any local control system. More about that you can […]
