The Water Framework Directive: What are the Business Opportunities Past Conference Papers


The EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) is based upon integrated environmental management with the key objectives to prevent any further deterioration of water bodies and to protect and enhance the status of aquatic ecosystems and associated wetlands. It aims to promote sustainable water consumption, and will contribute to mitigating the effects of floods and droughts.

This SCI, Fera and CIWEM Tyne & Humber Branch event focused on business opportunities around achieving compliance with the WFD. The challenges were discussed first, including an overview of the regulations; the Humber River Basin Management Plan and some of the challenges that still need to be addressed to meet the objectives of WFD and the opportunities that they bring; plant protection products; reservoir catchments and river basin management. Opportunities for business, including instrumentation and contamination control were presented in the afternoon.
