Aquafin

 

AQUAFIN was established by the Flemish Region in 1990, for the purpose of expanding, operating and pre-financing the wastewater treatment infrastructure in Flanders. The Flemish Environmental Holding is the sole shareholder in AQUAFIN. AQUAFIN collects household wastewater from the municipal sewers in collector sewers and transports it to wastewater treatment plants, where it is treated in accordance with European and Flemish standards. Over a period of almost tirthy years, the company evolved from a new player in the sector into a many-faceted partner for all the actors involved in the implementation of an integrated water policy in Flanders.

The company’s strength is unmistakably in the combination of vision, expansion and management of the wastewater treatment infrastructure. The feedback between each of the steps makes it possible to have an integrated vision with respect to water treatment.

AQUAFIN is also a much sought after partner in research projects, both in Belgium and abroad, which are aimed at implementing the European Water framework directive.
