The importance of treating and understanding the value of wastewater has never been greater
Wastewater is regarded as both a major challenge and a great opportunity. Due to increasing water scarcity and population growth, the importance of treating and understanding the value of wastewater has never been greater. Globally, less than half of all wastewater is collected and even less than 20 per cent of it is treated before it is released back into nature. This represents a great potential for wastewater optimisation. In Denmark, 95 per cent of all wastewater is treated – and often to a higher standard than the legal requirements.
At the same time, it is also a challenge to ensure the most cost-efficient design of an area’s wastewater infrastructure. Here, both centralised and decentralised solutions can ensure effective and cost-efficient treatment through a network of sewer systems designed according to local conditions.
We invite you to explore solutions related to wastewater in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how wastewater solutions can help solve your environmental issues.

The shift from a conventional wastewater treatment plant towards a resource recovery facility has become a priority focus in Denmark. Consequently, BIOFOS is now in the transfer process towards optimising resources from waste without compromising the environment.
Gottlieb Paludan Architects has designed Solrødgård Climate and Environmental Park, which is the result of an unusual symbiosis between supply plant, climate adaption and landscape park. The aim of the park is to let visitors explore energy cycles which are fundamental to daily life.
Denmark has the experience and technology to help lift the big promises made at the several green summits during the autumn. The determination to live up to these promises is clearly marked by the visit to Denmark by the minister of the Environment, Climate and the Energy Sector from the German state Baden-Württemberg. The visit will showcase concrete Danish green approaches and solutions.
The next application round for P4G funding to partnerships with a sustainable business model is open. Funding of between USD 100,000 to USD 1,000,000 is available to either partnerships with a start-up or a scale-up concept.
A new heat pump in Copenhagen will collect energy from both wastewater and seawater and test how the energy can be used in district heating. The capacity of the heat pump corresponds to district heating for 1,100 Copenhagen households.
Hennig-Olsen Is (Hennig-Olsen ice cream) concerns about the environment. Thanks to the first Grundfos BioBooster solution in the country, the leading Norwegian ice cream producer can now meet the increased wastewater treatment requirements.
Vietnam is one of the world’s largest producers of farmed seafood and they have plans to double the production by 2020. Farming methods are often traditional and to increase production this significantly, there is a strong need for new sustainable technology and for moving the production towards sustainability. Vietnam has undergone rapid socio-economic development over […]
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This and the threat of water scarcity underline the need for more efficient and smarter wastewater treatment across the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
Save money and reduce carbon emission by making your energy consumption flexible with the automated smart grid! This tool will help you take advantage of variations in energy prices on the spot market and increase utilisation of renewable energy at the same time. How it works In many markets, electricity prices are flexible and vary […]
In simple terms, Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is testing, verifying and documenting the performance of an environmental technology. The aim of ETV is to validate that the technology suits its purpose and performs as claimed. This means that your environmental technology can obtain a quality stamp from an independent verification unit in form of a […]
An overflow construction, placed at Kærbyholmrende, Middelfart, functions as a test and demo site for cleaning combined sewer overflow (CSO) with a HydroSeparator. The project is a cooperation between Middelfart Wastewater and Bonnerup Consults, and is supported by the Ministry of Environment. The HydroSeparator is developed by Bonnerup Consult primarily for treatment of rainwater, but […]

EnviDan International has successfully conducted an R&D project in China upgrading a wastewater treatment plant for 200.000PE. At the plant in Ma An Shan EnviDan has implemented the ARP process and online control system EnviStyr and test results show significant improvements in effluent quality. With support from the Danish EPA and in cooperation with Aihua […]
Enhanced demands for food production will increase the global demand for fertilisers such as phosphorus. The global sources of phosphorus are limited, and the increased demand will result in rising market prices and a global fight for control over the limited reserves emphasising the need for methods enabling phosphorus recycling. In such a market situation […]
