Wastewater treatment

Treating wastewater results in better water quality and more liveable cities

Globally, it is estimated that less than 20 percent of all wastewater generated from households and industry is adequately collected and treated. Moreover, only about 50-60 percent of wastewater discharges comply with the required quality standards due to inadequate capacity, operational performance or design of the infrastructure. After decades of environmental challenges, Denmark has created a strong regulatory framework to minimise the impacts from wastewater discharge and ensure cleaning to the highest standard. Finding solutions to our own challenges has resulted in better water quality and more livability in Danish cities and their surroundings.
