The partnership is proud to have hosted the closing conference of the Interreg 2 Seas project NEREUS: New Energy and Resources from Urban Sanitation on November 25th, livestreamed from Ghent.
Meet Grace and Gustavo, two interns at the HZ University of Applied Sciences (NL) who have worked on assignments for the NEREUS project in the last semester.
Both students are from outside the EU from two different corners of the world, and although working for the same project, had really diverse assignments. Curious to find out more about them and the results they achieved? Then read on below!
Recovering valuable resources from wastewater: 2020 Highlights of the Interreg2Seas NEREUS project
As small-scale tests have provided sufficient information, the algae cultivation has recently been upscaled to a photobioreactor (20 l) to optimise treatment conditions.
Project partner HZ University with valuable input from consortium partner University of Portsmouth composed a research article about the technical, environmental, economic and social key performance indicators (KPIs) that can be used to quantify the benefits and the risks of resource recovery.
The Belgian Federation of Entreprises has nominated NEREUS partner DUCOOP and the New Docks NEREUS demosite in Ghent for the Belgian Business Awards for the Environment (BBAE).
What type and amount of lime does one need to optimize the processes of drying, transporting and reusing wastewater sludge? That’s the question CAPSO aimed to answer in the NEREUS project. During a visit to the Saint-Omer wastewater treatment plant last December, the project partners got to see what answer their French partner proposed.
Up to 90% flushing water needed!
The decentralized resource recovery concept from the Ghent "New Docks" demo case that is currently under construction is already being replicated. Students from the University of Ghent use the local Nereus approach for the modular construction concept "The Mobble".
