Water Framework Directive: Sustainable Treatment Solutions for Achieving Good Ecological Status
ISBN: 1 84057 501 8
Implementation of the Water Framework Directive is likely to necessitate tighter effluent consent standards and more extensive wastewater treatment. The pursuit of the environmental target of higher final effluent quality may result in adverse impacts on other important aspects of the environment, such as greenhouse gas emissions. This project has provided the water industry with a spreadsheet tool to assess the sustainability impacts of achieving good quality ecological status under the Water Framework Directive via different treatment processes. The tool will enable water companies to better estimate the implications on sustainability indicators, such as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, resulting from the Water Framework Directive. This will be important for companies in helping predict more accurately the GHG emission changes affecting their business in forthcoming years and what implications these changes may have on meeting requirements of future carbon trading schemes.
