Water in the circular economy policy development
The workshop on ‘Water in the Circular Economy policy development‘ is a joint event of Water Europe (WE), EASME and NextGen organised in the frame of Water Knowledge Europe 2021 (WKE2021), side event Water Projects Europe (WPE2021). The workshop session took place on 26 March 2021. The EU Circular Economy Action Plan provides the basis for a regulatory framework that is streamlined and made fit for a sustainable future. In this report, we reflect on the policy implications for the implementation and transferability of initiatives to further close water cycles, reuse water, and recover energy and nutrients from wastewater, based on real-life experience from water in the Circular Economy (CE) demonstration cases across Europe.
