Ensuring a proper water quality to protect the health of both people and ecosystems
Ensuring a proper water quality to meet the requirements for the intended purpose is important in order to protect the health of both people and our ecosystems. Whether the water needs to be used for drinking, swimming, flushing toilets or in industrial processes, it is important that the right treatment and technologies for testing the water quality are in place. Danish water treatment solutions include UV disinfection systems, electrolysis technology, membrane technology for water purification and desalination of seawater, treatment technologies for stormwater runoff and nature-based solutions for improving the overall quality of our water environments. To make sure the treatment is successful and the right quality has been achieved, innovative solutions for water quality monitoring and testing have also been developed.
We invite you to explore solutions related to water quality and treatment in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how water quality and treatment can help solve your environmental issues.
Rural Ugandan fishing villages along Lake Victoria did not have easy access to safe water. The lake is polluted from industrial waste and causes serious or deadly waterborne diseases when ingested. In 2015 the Iceland government funded a 4-year Water, Sanitation and Health (WASH) project to help the area.
HOFOR, Greater Copenhagen Utility, is in the process of modernizing and introducing softening of the drinking water at its waterworks. Marbjerg Waterworks was the first of HOFOR’s waterworks to be renovated back in 2015, and HOFOR is currently starting up the new softening plant at the waterworks. Protection of the environment and the drinking water has been the main priority in the design of Marbjerg Waterworks

As a result of water scarcity, many industries today are under increasing pressure from consumers, regulators and investors to shift towards a more sustainable use of water. One of the strategies is Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD), in which all wastewater is cleaned and reused within a factory. ZLD strategies for minimizing waste streams are already […]
Good water management can make cities healthier places to live, resilient towards climate change and more sustainable overall. Without proper sanitation, sewerage and clean water supply, there is no liveable city. This white paper features lessons learned from different Danish stakeholders within urban water management. It is meant to serve as a tool for inspiration for creating innovative water solutions, which contribute to smarter and more liveable cities.
Billund BioRefinery (BBR) is a resource recovery plant that integrates urban waste management and wastewater treatment with circular economy. We produce energy, clean water and nutrient rich natural fertilizer, all whilst effectively cleaning all the influent waste streams and protecting the environment.
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.
ULTRAAQUA Group is specialized in advanced pool water treatment and is known for pioneering particle filtration and disinfection technologies. The biggest problem in chlorinated swimming pool water is that chlorine reacts extremely rapidly with nitrogen compounds in the water to give rise to problematic disinfection by-products (DBP) such mono-, di-, and trichloramine. Especially, trichloramine, NCl3, has […]

New EU directive map out how drinking water quality and supply can improve across the EU. Denmark has helped to focus on water waste in the revised EU directive aimed at ensuring consumers healthy and clean drinking water.
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.
The UN Environment released its sixth global environment outlook during the UN Climate Summit that took place in Kenya last week. The report argues that the world has the technological, scientific and financial resources needed to secure a healthy planet, but the need for immediate action is paramount.
A new Danish agreement backed by a broad group of political parties will improve the protection of the exceptionally clean Danish groundwater. With the new agreement, Denmark takes an important step towards implementing the world’s best protection of clean drinking water.
Climate change is affecting global rainfall patterns and water distribution. Since there is approximately 100 times more groundwater on Earth than fresh surface water, it makes sense to exploit groundwater as a source of water. The aim of this white paper is to share some of Denmark’s technologies, tools and methods for groundwater mapping and hydrogeological modelling.
