New European trade association for water and wastewater industry

A new Brussels-based association for the European water and wastewater industries has been formed this week with Peter-Lorenz Scmidt, of BWT, the Austrian water technology group, as its president.

The new association, Aqua Europa, aims to be the representative body for the wider European industry supply base.

It will work closely with the European Commission in developing water policy to balance infrastructural needs with industry ability to meet them.

The group is formed of Aqua Belgica, Aqua Denmark, Aqua Espana, Aqua Italia, Austrian Water Association, BSW (Germany), British Water, FIGAWA (Germany), UAE (France), and Water Quality of America (Associate).

More information can be obtained by emailing British Water.
