Dutch companies win awards in Abu Dhabi

Hydraloop International and engineering firm Witteveen+Bos won awards at the International Water Summit (IWS) in Abu Dhabi. Hydraloop, which has a branch at the WaterCampus Leeuwarden, developed a water recycling system which collects, cleans, and disinfects water from bathrooms and washing machines.

By reusing 55 percent of tap water, the system results in considerable savings. Developed by Witteveen+Bos, the 1-STEP filter is a compact, modular carbon filter which combines four treatment processes into a single treatment unit.

Dutch companies exhibited their projects and innovations in the Smart Water Pavilion at the IWS, which was held in January. Water Alliance was actively involved with the pavilion.
