In contrast to conventional activated sludge, the Nereda technology treats wastewater at up to 30% less investment cost, 30% less energy, and uses up to 75% less land. However, the implementation of Nereda is slow because of lack of trust in new technologies, and a chronic lack of funding in the water industry globally.
Nereda for biological wastewater treatment: Proven at TU Delft, developed by DHV, demo plant in Gansbaai, South Africa, first full scale plant launched on 8 May 2012 in Epe, the Netherlands. While this technology is a clear improve- ment over conventional treatment, securing investment remains a challenge.
