Our activities at Ringkøbing-Skjern Forsyning are the production and distribution of drinking water, the transport and purification of wastewater, the emptying of private holding tanks.
We supply app. 50,000 customers with more than 3 million cubic metres of drinking water per year. It is water of the best quality directly from the tap.
We purify more than 9 million cubic metres wastewater per year from 60,000 customers, and thereby we contribute to public health and a steadily improving aquatic environment.
We constantly focus on improving the quality of the drinking water and our new water treatment plant Aquatarium i s a perfect example of quality, combined with innovation and technology. The plant provides research facilities for schools, colleges and universities so that we can learn more about how to secure the best drinking water in the world.
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This has led to severe environmental degradation of many inland and sea waters around the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
In recent years, the Danish Technological Institute (DTI) has been a principal partner in several R&D projects focusing on characterisation and removal of microplastics and microrubber in wastewater treatment plant influent/effluent, industrial wastewater and stormwater, respectively.
