First Bluebloqs system in Belgium ready for use!

In Flanders, with a view to climate change, there is a need to sustainably manage the city's wastewater. Our team has worked hard during the summer to build a test setup of the Bluebloqs biofilter at Aquafin in Aartselaar (BE), to explore the possibilities of Bluebloqs in this matter.

Testing Bluebloqs Biofilter to treat stormwater runoff

Maintaining good surface water quality and dealing with drought are growing challenges in urban areas. To help municipalities, water authorities and end-users adapt to climate change, we have developed Bluebloqs technology. Bluebloqs Biofilter is part of our circular system to enable rainwater storage and reuse in urban areas.

Participatory budgeting for climate adaptation

How can we define the value different measures provide to the end-users and how can we involve inhabitants when planning for climate adaptation? Together with researchers from the TU Delft and the Municipality of The Hague, we are conducting a research into the value inhabitants derive from grey and infrastructure to prevent pluvial flooding.

Rapid prototyping in our design process

Now that the realisation of the first full-scale pilot application of our Bluebloqs system in Spangen is coming up, we would like to give some insights in how we are able to reach this point in development. During the product design process, different aspects often need to be tested to find the best solution.

Insight into applications of the Urban Waterbuffer

The space needed for water retention and infiltration in urban areas is typically limited. This results in conflicts with other uses of space, and in solutions that are expensive. With the Urban Waterbuffer (UWB) rainwater in urban areas can be purified and retained for a longer time, without obstructing other spatial functions.
