Micropollutants removal - improve the water quality Nijhuis Industries, with several partners ozone and ozone-UV solutions, are currently investigating the reduction of micropollutants at different locations. For example, in the municipality in Winterswijk, the Netherlands, a 40-foot ozone and UV container is treating the wastewater of hospital ‘Streekziekenhuis Koningin Beatrix’ to investigate the impact of treating wastewater at the source and not at the municipal wastewater treatment plant. The pilot plant become operational in January 2019 and is now generating data. The project partners have developed a new and smart concept: UVO3. The ultimate goal of this pilot project is to develop a costeffective treatment that can be applied easily as well as being flexible and modular to the treatment demand of the future. Not only hospitals are involved in the project, the entire healthcare sector and chain in the Netherlands are looking forward to the outcomes of the prestigious project. The UVO3 project has been made possible with subsidies from the EU, Gelderland province, Overijssel province and the European Regional Development Fund.

At another location, the Dutch Water Authority ‘Aa & Maas’ is currently conducting pilot research, together with Nijhuis Industries, to investigate whether the removal rate of more than 80% of pharmaceutical residues from municipal wastewater is feasible. The research has a highly scientific nature, to validate which ‘fourth treatment stage’ technology is able to remove pharmaceutical residues and can be applied at full-scale capacity. Currently, several municipal treatment plants in the Netherlands rely on pre-treatment, biological treatment and polishing steps for additional nutrient removal. The ‘fourth treatment stage’ has to ensure that more than 80% of the pharmaceutical residues and other micro pollutants will be removed, improving the ecological environment.processes.”
