Production and application of granular aquafer

Every year in the Netherlands about 95,000 tons of aquafer is generated (62,000 tons of liquid aquafer and 33,000 tons of dewatered aquafer).

Reststoffenunie (now AquaMinerals) disposes of this water company residual and finds outlets for it in a variety of applications, such as in bioenergy plants, WWTPs and as a construction material. The transformation of dewatered aquafer into granular material makes a further expansion of the sales opportunities possible. The pellets can be used as filter medium, for example in gas and air cleaning (H2S binding) or water treatment (removal of phosphorus and heavy metals). The pellets can also be used in the development of nature areas (phosphorus binding in water courses and soil).
