Home – waste water treatment plants project


The main objective of Horizon2020 ENERWATER project is to develop, validate and disseminate an innovative standard methodology for continuously assessing, labelling and improving the overall energy performance of Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs).

For that purpose a collaboration framework in the water treatment sector including research groups, SMEs, water management companies, city councils, water authorities and industry was set up.

ENERWATER is devoting important efforts to ensure that the methods are widely adopted. Subsequent objectives are to impulse dialogue towards the creation of a specific European legislation following the example of recently approved EU directives, to establish a way forward to achieve EU energy reductions objectives for 2020, ensuring effluent water quality, environmental protection and compliance with the Water Framework Directive (FWD).

The project will last 36 months starting in 1st March 2015.
