Innovation Deal – Water Reuse

Earlier this month the European Commission, together with 14 partners from national and regional authorities, universities, knowledge centres, innovators and end-users, signed an Innovation Deal on water reuse. The Innovation Deal will focus on perceived regulatory barriers in relation to the recovery of costs for water services, discharge requirements for urban wastewater treatment, and responsibilities of end-users for water reuse. An Innovation Deal is a voluntary agreement aiming to bring together relevant national, local and EU regulatory bodies and other agents to help innovators overcome perceived regulatory barriers to innovation. The concept of Innovation Deals has been launched in the scope of the Commission’s Circular Economy package.
