In 2016, Pantarein will install sustainable water treatment technology at Bosteels and Huyghe in order to save water, energy and money. The project got the support of VLAKWA, the Flemish Knowledge Centre Water. Using a water balance, the partners demonstrated that it is possible to reuse up to 30% of the water used. Water of good quality will now be recovered and used for a number of low-grade applications. Moreover, the energy use of the water treatment plant will be optimised and heat will be recovered from wastewater.

The results of the DUWAHE² project were presented on February 4th at AppliTek.
