Invention: Waste-water treatment method

Dutch scientists Mark van Loosdrecht, Merle Krista de Kreuk and Joseph Heijnen invented a cutting-edge sewage purification system which uses aerobic granular biomass. Bridging biotechnology and civil engineering, their solution drastically improves the quality of waste-water going back into the water cycle, without relying on extra chemicals. It can also make water treatment much more efficient and cost-effective.
