A project with the world first predicate must also be found in the ‘air’. Therefore, a website is developed about CADoS, which is live since April 11. On this website you can read about the specifics of CADoS, but also about why we start this project. Please read the website and be astonished!
CADoS in a nutshell
The object of the CADoS project is to develop and to build a prototype of the Cellulose Assisted Dewatering of Sludge (CADoS) water treatment concept at the Ulrum sewage-treatment plant. The CADoS principle will be applied to use a new sieving technology innovatively within an existing wastewater treatment process.
Wastewater carried via sewers to the treatment plant contains solid matter that includes a large proportion of cellulose. The cellulose stems from the use of toilet paper. The project will separate the solid matter containing cellulose that is present in the sewage water by means of a fine sieve and will use the separated solid matter for the dewatering of sewage sludge. The CADoS principle is being applied to attempt to reduce significantly the use of chemicals at the treatment plant, to consume less energy and to lower sludge processing costs. CADoS will also increase the energy yield from biogas in the fermentation of sludge.
Water authorities, universities and industry work together in project Cados. The uniqueness of the collaboration is the power of the ‘golden triangle’, and that these parties cover the entire line of water treatment areas. Therefore the effect of theories can be quickly tested in practice. The six parties each have a practical and financial stake in the project, but also each have their own goals and interests.
We regularly publish on this website the latest news around Cados, for example milestones or research findings. In order to stay informed, you can view the page ‘news’. On the webpage ‘publications’ you will find the collection of own and press publications. It is also possible to stay informed via the RSS feed Cados. In order to achieve this you can add the address http://www.cados.nl/en/feed/ to your RSS reader or click ‘rss’ at the bottom of the website.
The website is still very textually inserted. We will soon post pictures supporting the texts.
