Braunschweig is one of very few large-scale agricultural reuse sites in Germany, and serves as water reuse showcase for Germany and Central Europe. It reuses the effluent of Steinhof WWTP for agricultural restricted irrigation (fodder and industrial crops).
The BRL exploitation company reuses disinfected wastewater from the Roquefort des Corbières wastewater treatment plant for irrigation of vineyards in the region.
The project disinfects the effluent of a WWTP to irrigate horticultural crops, along with citrus trees, fruit trees… One of the disinfection techniques that is being investigated is solar UV disinfection. On a yearly basis, the fully implemented system reclaims 13.5 hm³ of water.
