Holland Innovation & Inspiration Hotspot
Dutch water technology in the hotspot
The Dutch understand water like no other. They understand the possibilities it offers for transport, energy and tourism, as well as the risks regarding flooding, safety and pollution. The Dutch knowledge, however, runs deeper. Every day, in many places in the Netherlands, water secrets are researched and revealed, right down to the microscopic level. This often results in remarkable innovations with worldwide applications. In order to increase the international spreading of Dutch knowledge and innovations in water technology, Water Alliance has established the ‘Holland Innovation & Inspiration Hotspot’, a special concept which highlights Dutch water technology best practices and latest innovations.
More information:


Holland Innovation & Inspiration Hotspot: Acquaint B.V.
Acquaint B.V. stands for AQUA, INTEGRITY & INTERNATIONAL. Our objective is to develop and market inspection methods and techniques for the drinking water and wastewater sector. In a modern asset management organization authentication techniques are used to validate policy into practice. Without these techniques it is impossible to have grip on the performance and future failure of assets. Inspection techniques are an essential link within the asset management cycle. By using our inspection techniques we contribute to operational excellence and a structural decrease of your capital costs. | | @Prevent_failure


Holland Innovation & Inspiration Hotspot: BLUE-tec
BLUE-tec is focussing on the development and realization of technologies for a sustainable treatment of water and process streams. We are a leader in membrane technology with the emphasis on membrane contact processes like Forward Osmosis and Ammonia Membrane Stripping. The technologies are applied in zero liquid discharge projects, concentration of valuable products in the industry, ammonia recovery from centrate water, new wastewater concepts, etc. BLUE-tec offers feasibility studies, laboratory and pilot research, engineering and turn key delivery. |


Holland Innovation & Inspiration Hotspot: Bluecon
Bluecon developed a compact system for decentralized treatment of municipal wastewater. In a unique process called ‘Blueconizing’ wastewater is 100% physically purified to local requirements for re-use in agricultural irrigation, aquifer re-charge or supplementing surface waterbodies.

Key issues:

  • From 500 to 5.000 inhabitants per Bluecon unit
  • Decentralized water treatment for local re-use of water
  • Easy to operate including on/off operation
  • For resorts, villages, islands, hotels, city sections, etc.
  • Pay per cubic meter water treated |


Holland Innovation & Inspiration Hotspot: Hydraloop International
At Hydraloop International we are committed to inspire people to save water & energy by offering smart and affordable water recycling products. Water from the shower, bath and washing machine gets collected into the Hydraloop and cleaned by a unique, patented water treatment technology which removes dirt, soap and other pollution. Because of this the Hydraloop system has a very low
maintenance requirement. The re-use water is clean, clear and safe to use again, and you can recycle 85% of total in-house domestic water used. We believe that water recycling should become a standard item in every single home. |
