Use of Nereda Technology to Treat Waste Water

The objective of the new plant is to address the storm water surge effect on the quality of the waste water being discharged into the River Medlock. This process is identified as ‘Nereda’, a Dutch originated process.

The final phase is the start-up, which takes around six months for the biological process to achieve the designated levels of treatment and ultimate water discharge quality.

The team have reduced this six month start-up period to 12 weeks by importing 21 tankers of seed sludge from the Dutch Nereda reactor to inoculate the Failsworth reactor. Benefits of the improved water treatment are realised much sooner.

This innovative process to speed up the inoculation time will be available for future Nereda reactors being built around the UK by harvesting the Failsworth seed sludge for their start-up.
