Sustainable wastewater management in the European Union

Rechten: Alle rechten voorbehouden

Samenvatting

The scope of this paper is safe and sustainable sanitation in agriculture. Specifically, the idea of the paper is to find out the existing regulations and guidelines concerning a sustainable wastewater management in the European Union (EU), regarding small-scale on-site wastewater management, and particularly regarding the safe reuse of the source separated wastewater streams in the agriculture. These are identified, first, on the EU level, and second, on a national level. As specific countries for the purpose of studying national legislation three European Union Member States, namely Finland, the Netherlands and Sweden are studied. Furthermore, a part of the study is dedicated to the World Health Organisations (WHO) Guidelines for the safe use of wastewater, excreta and greywater. In that part, it will be seen whether the Guidelines could contribute in formulating guidelines for the EU. The findings of this study show that currently sustainable sanitation is not fully possible in the European Union, and in order to allow this, the European Union has to modify its legislation in the future. The WHO Guidelines could help in formulating new legislation for the EU.
