President Visits Dutch Site With Hungarian Biological Waste Water Treatment Plant
The Hungarian president observed the operation of a Hungarian developed biological waste water treatment plant at the abbey in Koningshoeven on Friday, wrapping up his visit to the Netherlands.

Using plants and algae in an alternative technology, the facility has capacity to filter the waste water of a community of 20,000 residents, János Áder told journalists at the site.

It can also be used for filtering out residues of drugs and chemicals in industrial waste water in a process faster and more effective than conventional ones, he said. 

Áder hailed that Biopolus, the Hungarian project company, has entered with its innovation the market of a country that had amassed hundreds of years of experience in water purifying technologies.
