Professional preparation of wastewater registers

In recent years there have been numerous changes in European water law, reflected in the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and, most recently, in the EU Green Deal. In addition, industry-specific BAT or BREF codes of practice are regularly developed and adopted. As a result, national wastewater ordinances are currently subject to constant change, so that the wastewater register has become the central element of operational wastewater management.

Industrial wastewater in clarifier of a sewage treatment plant

Wastewater producers in the chemical, pharmaceutical, chip and textile industries are required by the German Wastewater Ordinance (AbwV) to compile an operational wastewater register and submit it to the responsible water authority. The register serves as evidence that all water law requirements have been met and includes a description and documentation of the respective wastewater flows and their flow paths. Special attention must be paid to reviewing the use of resources and the concentration of different substances and heavy metals. Our experts have decades of experience in the preparation of wastewater registers and industrial wastewater treatment. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
