Aqwise wins EU grant to develop wastewater system with Dutch partnerIsraeli wastewater treatment company, Aqwise Wise Water Technologies and its Dutch partner have won a NIS 2.8 million grant from the European Union Eureka R&D program to jointly develop a combined anaerobic and aerobic reactor system for treating wastewater.
The two companies will develop a dynamic anaerobic aerobic reactor (DANA) that will allow the integration of anaerobic and aerobic processes in one vertical configuration. It is the first time such a system has been developed, and should be up and running by the end of 2010.
Under the terms of the agreement, Aqwise, which develops wastewater treatment systems, will develop the system, while its Dutch partners will integrate it. The system is designed to help sewage treatment companies reduce the number of treatment tanks.
