Suppliers of water-treatment technologies are welcome to participate in a study for removing crop protection products from discharge water in the horticulture sector. The Platform Sustainable Horticulture is offering all suppliers of technologies intended for horticulture the opportunity to take part in a new study into the removal of crop protection products from discharge water.
The Platform Sustainable Greenhouse Horticulture has commissioned Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture and the Netherlands Water Partnership to carry out a project called Evaluation of Technologies for Treatment of Drain Water. The study will test the effectiveness, efficiency and applicability of the techniques available for removing crop protection products from discharge water.
Independent experts from the Dutch water sector (from KWR, Wetsus, Mannen van de WIT and Delfland District water control board), together with a representatives from the greenhouse sector, have compiled a long list of techniques. The project's steering group have selected the following four techniques for further testing:
- Ozone + activated carbon
- Hydrogen peroxide + LD-UV
- Moving Bed Adsorption
- Electrochemical Flocculation
