• Results of crop production and yield are equivalent using treated waste water and clear water
  • Use of alternative water source for irrigation permits to safe valuable water resources (e.g. aquifers)
  • Low values of pathogens in water and fruit proof that TREAT&USE is a safe technology for waste water reuse in agriculture
  • The prototype can be up-scaled to higher production rates, including food industry uses.
  • It’s technically possible to use waste water directly from the sewer and provide it with the appropriate quality required by legislation.
  • The use of waste water reduces the needs of additional fertilizer (and for the tomato crops tested in TREAT&USE, there is no need of additional fertilizer at all).
  • Low Operation and Maintenance and high automated control system allow an easy operation of the end user with relatively low annual costs.
