DESCRIPTION

Is reduction of water consumption, better reuse of water and other materials, improved recycling and recovery of resources possible? Modern wastewater treatment plants function as resource factories, being able to recover energy, phosphorus, and nitrate and produce biogas, bioplastic and fertilizers. This is just the beginning of a transition towards integrated management of wastewater, stormwater, solid waste and energy within urban water planning and management, where utilities and multi-stakeholder-partnerships engage in long-term planning and development of the sector. Therefore, the circular economy approach contributes to development of sustainable, water-wise cities where water and liveability go hand in hand.
