Agreement for biopolymer recovery from wastewater signed

23 January 2018

Royal HaskoningDHV and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) have signed an agreement stating that patented techniques used to extract valuable biopolymers from Nereda® wastewater treatment sludge are transferred to Royal HaskoningDHV. This technology, originating from research at TU Delft, opens up the opportunity to recover a biopolymer mix produced by the bacteria purifying the wastewater. This new reusable substance can easily be harvested and has the potential to unlock economically interesting applications in the paper and textile industries, in the agricultural sector, but especially in the development of advanced nanocomposite materials (News Item TU Delft, 8 December 2017).
