The Next Generation in Sewage Treatment
Significantly Smaller Footprint than Conventional Plants
Reduced Energy Input (25 - 35%)
This unique technology is supported by Aquatec Maxcon, Australia's leading water technology provider and the leading European technology developer and consultant, DHV.
Nereda® is an innovative, advanced biological wastewater treatment technology that purifies water using the unique features of aerobic granular biomass. Unlike conventional processes, the purifying bacteria concentrate naturally in compact granules, with excellent settling properties. As a result of the large variety of biological processes that simultaneously takes place in the granular biomass, Nereda® is capable of meeting stringent effluent quality requirements. Extensive biological phosphorus and nitrogen reduction is an intrinsic attribute of this technology, resulting in chemical free operation.
These unique process features translate into compact, energy saving and easy to operate Nereda® installations for both municipal and industrial waste water treatment. Nereda® presents attractive new solutions for greenfield and brownfield sites and retrofitting or extending conventional activated sludge plants. The technology is also highly recommended for performance and capacity upgrades of existing SBR facilities.
Nereda® enables extensive biological treatment in a compact and simple design.
Reduced plant costs are achieved through:
Plant operation is easy and process performance is robust. The Nereda® system is fully automated ensuring reliable performance and ease of operation.
Extensive life cycle analyses reveal Nereda® as a truly sustainable technology. Compared to conventional processes, Nereda® has significantly lower energy consumption but also produces a remarkably high effluent quality. The technology requires less waste generating chemicals, construction material and mechanical equipment for an overall reduced carbon footprint.
Aquatec Maxcon in partnership with DHV can deliver technical advice and the process knowhow to meet your specific project needs.
Aquatec Maxcon has over 40 years' experience in treating water and wastewater for both municipal and industrial applications. A leader of the water industry, Aquatec Maxcon has introduced a range of innovative process technologies to Australia including the first UASB, IC Reactor, Membrane Bioreactor and Circox Reacotr. We have a successful track record in introducing new technologies and have diligently supported their implementation with Australian conditions.
Nereda® was invented by the world renowned Delft University of Technology. In close cooperation with universities, research institutes, STOWA, water boards, various industrial and municipal launching customers, and supported by national and international grants, DHV has transformed the process into an internationally applied, sustainable and cost effective technology.
