Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen werd ontvangen door Annette Ottolini CEO van Evides en President Dow Western Europe, Anton van Beek.

Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen was welcomed by Annette Ottolini CEO of Evides and President Dow Western Europe, Anton van Beek. The minister's working visit focused on water reuse on a large, innovative and sustainable scale, circularity (reuse of treated waste water) and the long-term collaboration between Dow and Evides Industriewater.

The minister was updated on the joint task of Evides Industriewater and Dow Benelux to use 100% recycled water in the production process at Dow. The basic principle here is that the high requirements in terms of quality and reliability are met. An important part of this assignment is the pilot Wetland. The effluent from the local industrial and domestic wastewater treatment plants undergoes a natural pre-treatment, after which it is further purified to the high quality required for the industrial process.

Tour In a guided tour along the wetland and through the purification plant, process engineer of Evides Industriewater Otto Schepers and Dow water specialist Niels Groot gave text and explanation about the (pre) purification process. It was a successful working visit.
