Nereda® raises health and water standards by using a new method for wastewater treatment. The technology uses aerobic granular biomass to produce clean water. Nereda® was invented at Delft University, and developed in cooperation with the Dutch Foundation for Applied Water Research (STOWA), the Dutch Water Boards and Royal HaskoningDHV, of which the latter commercialized the product. The technology is more effective and less expensive than traditional methods, it is more efficient in terms of land use, resources and energy, and it does not make use of toxic chemicals. This leads to cleaner water, at lower economic and environmental cost.
