Circular water in a built environment: perspectives from several European cities


You can join without registering by clicking this Zoom link.

During this fifth webinar in the international series on climate adaptation, we will discuss the application of circular water systems in the built environment.

Seperate wastewater system in Sweden

Ellen Edefell from NSVA – Nordvästra Skånes Vatten och Avlopp will talk about the Oceanhammen district and RecoLab in Helsingborg, Sweden, where a separate wastewater system has been implemented. Black water, grey water and food residues are collected separately, whereby grey water is purified for reuse. Biogas, struvite and ammonium sulfate are extracted for agricultural purposes from the black water and food waste.

Amoung other things, Ellen wil elaborate on the resident survey, in which residents can indicate what they think of the system and how they handle the vacuum toilets and food grinders they have in their homes.

Brainport Smart District

Henk-Jan van Alphen from KWR will talk about the Brainport Smart District, in which Brabant Water, Waterschap Aa en Maas, Waterschap De Dommel, Gemeente Helmond, Provincie Noord-Brabant and KWR are collaborating on the realization of a circular water system. The webinar will mainly treat the cooperation process to arrive at such a system.

Note: this webinar will be held in english and be subtitled in dutch afterwards.
