waterFor the first time in a century, the Netherlands will be using a different technology to treat waste water. Epe on the Veluwe will be the first in the world to do this.
On Tuesday Prince Willem Alexander will open  the new wastewater treatment based on the so-called Nereda technology in Epe.

The technology was invented by TU in Delft and further developed by the university, engineering company DHV .
Nereda (named after the daughter of the Greek water god Nereus) is a granular sludge. The grains are full of water purifying bacteria domestic wastewater to four times faster than traditional cleaning techniques.
