Supply and disposal
The German sewage system is outdated. Large parts of the network were built more than 100 years ago. Even though hundreds of millions of euros flow into maintenance and expansion every year, this remains an eternal task for the municipalities. Processes can be optimized and costs can be saved by using new techniques for damage analyses. The sewage system is being increasingly polluted by things like wet wipes and other hygiene items that are discharged via toilets, and these lead to blockages.
The topic of microplastics also requires new approaches. The aim is to curb the entry of harmful particles into natural waters. Finally, climate change and inner-city surface sealing require effective rainwater management.
This key topic addresses companies, authorities and suppliers in these areas:
- Waste water treatment
- Drains, fittings and valves
- Groundwater management
- Pumps and lifting stations
- Rainwater management
- Pipe and line construction
- Water production, treatment and management
