Market Study Municipal Waste Water Treatment Plants in Europe 2006/2007

The market for municipal waste water treatment plants is a long-term growth market. The number of treatment plants, as well as the level of sophistication of their technical equipment, has increased continually since the 1950's.

Currently, too, wastewater treatment in Europe is being expanded and upgraded in terms of both quality and quantity. The European Union's policies and financing, and especially its Directive on Urban Waste Water Treatment and the Water Framework Directive, have played a key role in putting momentum into the market.

In light of these developments, ecoprog GmbH, together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology UMSICHT, has studied the market for urban waste water treatment plants in Europe in detail. In the most important markets, such as France, the UK, Italy, Spain, Poland and Romania, subcontractors in these countries have compiled a substantial amount of information about the number and type of plants.

Based on our knowledge of the market and detailed surveys, we are able to offer suppliers, the components industry, operators, organisations, promoters of trade and industry, research institutes and consultants an up to date overview of trends, estimates, numbers and facts about the European market for urban waste water treatment plants.

In specific terms, the market study for waste water treatment plants from 2006 - 2007:

  • an overview of all the significant political, economic, operational and technical trends in urban waste water treatment that influence the supplier market,
  • specific, country-specific estimates of market volumes up to and including 2010, based on a transparent and clear methodology,
  • detailed information about 2,400 waste water treatment plants with a capacity of at least 50,000 population equivalents. This covers approximately 99% of all plants of this size in Europe, which provide approximately two thirds of the capacity in Europe.
  • For about 2,150 of these plants, an accurate quantative analysis of the plant's capacity, as well as a description of its waste water treatment plants performance, at least according to the basic type of waste water treatment plants.
  • For about 2,000 of these plants, details of the addresses and contact details for the waste water treatment plant and/or the plant operator.

The study will be available in English and German language from June 2006 for € 2,500 incl. VAT.
