About this Report

Water scarcity has become a pressing challenge in the face of population growth, climate change, and increasing water demand globally. Municipalities and operators now must evaluate alternative supply options to meet future water demand. In Europe, the need for sustainable water management solutions has been magnified by last summer’s drought and record-breaking temperatures. As a result, municipal wastewater reuse has gained significant attention across Europe.

The reuse of treated effluent from wastewater presents an opportunity to bridge the gap between water supply and demand, particularly in water-stressed regions, while providing substantial benefits for water conservation, environmental protection, and economic development. Boosted by a successful regulatory framework, Spain has emerged as a market leader for reuse, followed by France and Portugal, but other European countries are now following suit.

This Insight Report will provide a comprehensive overview of municipal wastewater reuse practices in Europe, exploring the current state of the market, technological advancements, regulatory frameworks, and growth forecasts that highlight successful implementation. By examining the experiences, lessons learned, and outlooks from various European countries, this report will highlight market opportunities by geography, technology, and application.
