In Europe, the need for sustainable water management solutions has been magnified by last summer’s drought and record-breaking temperatures. The increasing severity of water stress remains a key driver behind the implementation of wastewater reuse. Particularly, in Southern Europe where water stress is more pronounced, the reuse market has witnessed greater development, although with challenges associated with funding and regulations.
As a consequence, some Mediterranean countries have become notable leaders in the adoption of reuse projects, mainly focused on facilitating agricultural irrigation, and to a lesser extent irrigation of landscapes and recreational areas.
In this episode, Bluefield’s Europe water experts discuss the research methodology behind their latest analysis of Europe’s municipal wastewater reuse market.
Key talking points:
- How is the EU policy landscape changing?
- Which countries are driving wastewater reuse in Europe?
- A look at market attractiveness by country
- What is the size of the market?
