As we become increasingly aware of the critical significance of sustainable water and wastewater management, we can be encouraged by the emergence of these working solutions which show that there is another way to approach provision of these most essential of services. A way that is defined by sustainability.
We are seeing how water sectors can give back to society across multiple metrics, besides providing the vital services we typically associated with them.
So for good reason, Danish water technologies and know-how are increasingly common features of water operations worldwide. In Denmark itself, however, it is clear that the groups responsible for forging this new direction for water and wastewater are far from done. There are higher targets, ambitious prototypes, and new solutions in the pipeline — all pitched for bringing water sectors further into the twenty-first century.
This three-part series takes a look at three areas of focus in the Danish water landscape, exploring some of the flagship solutions now in operation and planned for the future, as well as the philosophy and collaboration that has helped secure successes to date and underpins a shift to a clearer water future.
