URIDIS demonstration project: The Place to Pee


On July 6th, the ‘Place to Pee’ was officially opened. The Place to Pee is the first demonstration of the URIDIS technology at full scale. It is placed on the recreational domain ‘De Blaarmeersen’ in Gent (Strandlaan 24, BE9000- Gent), and will be operational from July until the end of September. A public toilet container which accommodates 2 urinals and 3 source separating toilets (Save! toilet from Laufen) is connected to the URIDIS system. The system treats urine locally: it recovers the nutrients and produces disinfecting flush water for the toilets. You can visit the demonstration unit and contribute with your ‘donation’ in the toilet container. We thank our partners Stad Gent, Farys, Laufen and Spraying Systems Co. for their support in this project!

Start of the Electrodis project:
chemical-free membrane technology for water purification and reuse


Hydrohm will work together with Ekopak in the framework of Electrodis, an open-call project by Vlakwa (Vlaams Kenniscentrum Water) and POM West-Vlaanderen. Electrodis aims to replace the use of chemicals for the cleaning and protection of water treatment membranes, by on-site electrochemical upgrading of RO-concentrate, which is currently a waste stream.

More information can be found on the VLAKWA website.
