  • Ostara helps protect precious water resources by changing the way cities around the world manage nutrients in wastewater streams. The company’s Pearl® technology recovers phosphorus and nitrogen at municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants and transforms them into a high-value, eco-friendly fertiliser, Crystal Green®. The process greatly reduces nutrient management costs and helps plants meet increasingly stringent discharge limits while improving operating reliability.

    Crystal Green is the first continuous release granular fertiliser to provide Root-Activated™ phosphorus, nitrogen and magnesium (5-28-0-10Mg), and is marketed through a global network of blenders and distributors to growers in the turf, horticultural and agriculture sectors. Its unique Root-Activated™ mode of action improves crop yields, enhances turf performance and significantly reduces the risk of leaching and runoff, thus protecting local waterways from nutrient pollution. Ostara operates multiple facilities throughout North America and Europe. For more information, visit www.ostara.com and www.crystalgreen.com

  • Nereda® is an innovative, advanced biological wastewater treatment technology that purifies water using the unique features of aerobic granular biomass. Unlike conventional processes, the purifying bacteria concentrates naturally in compact granules, with excellent settling properties. As a result of the large variety of biological processes that simultaneously take place in the granular biomass, Nereda® is capable of meeting stringent effluent quality requirements. Extensive biological phosphorus and nitrogen reduction is an intrinsic attribute of this technology, resulting in chemical free operation.


    These unique process features translate into compact, energy saving and easy to operate Nereda® installations for both municipal and industrial waste water treatment. Nereda® presents attractive new solutions for greenfield and brownfield sites and retrofitting or extending conventional activated sludge plants. The technology is also highly recommended for performance and capacity upgrades of existing SBR facilities.
    This unique technology is supported by ACCIONA Agua, Spanish leader in the water treatment sector with the ability to design, construct and operate water treatment plants.




 
 
  • PYREG GmbH is an innovative solution provider in the field of environmental technology. The company is situated in Dörth (Germany) and deals with energetic and material recycling of different biomasses.  PYREG manufactures equipment for the production of biochar, activated carbon and phosphorus fertiliser and via its subsidiary company, PYREG trades in the renewable thermal energy business and the material recycling of different biomasses as well as the marketing of the products it produces.

    Using a PYREG module, quality biochar and activated carbon is produced from organic residues, however, another innovative technique offered by the PYREG module is the thermal treatment of sludge from a municipal wastewater treatment plant (WwTP) to recover its phosphorus content as an enriched “plant available” fertiliser . In both cases excess thermal energy is generated for further use.
    The PYREG technology is based on a staged combustion, which has the ability to carbonise different natural biomasses in a thermal way. What remains is a sanitised mineral and carbon-containing dry residue, which can be used, for example, directly for soil amendment (phosphorus fertiliser, biochar) or as additive in the livestock husbandry (biochar, activated carbon).
