Who We Are

Water Reuse Europe (WRE) is a not-for-profit association which supports, assists and represents its members while promoting the water reuse sector as an effective option for sustainable and resilient water management.

It was founded in 2016 to bring together commercial and public organisations from across Europe who operate in the water reuse sector, and form a single unifying body through which best practice could be shared and develop a single voice on important issues. 

Water Reuse Europe now provides the collective space within which these ambitions can be achieved. In 2023, the association has 30 members from across Europe and beyond.
