RESANAT: Remediation of residual contamination by using nature-based techniques

The RESANAT project is a collaboration between seven small and large companies from the Netherlands and Flanders, including Tauw, on the one hand, and OVAM (Flemish Public Waste Authority) and knowledge institute Deltares on the other hand, which aims to stimulate redevelopment of contaminated sites in the Netherlands and Flanders. The project is partially funded by Interreg and will continue until 30 April 2022.

Nature-based remediation techniques

Conventional remediation and management techniques are too costly, energy- and material intensive and/or require too much groundwater. RESANAT applies nature-based remediation techniques where plants, micro-organisms and natural materials and processes are used to control residual pollution. These innovative techniques are expected to allow thousands of sites in the Netherlands and Flanders, where (residual) pollution is still a problem, to be put to sustainable use again at some time in the future.

Tauw contributes to the RESANAT project by bringing in the Natural Catch, a technique that we have developed in-house. For more information we refer to our news release.
