Water Reuse Europe Webinar – Impact of the New EU regulations on Water Reuse for Agriculture from End-Users’ perspectives
3rd December 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:45 pm GMT
On the 5th of June, the Official Journal of the European Commission published the first European Regulation on Water Reuse (Regulation (EU) 2020/741) on minimum requirements for water reuse.
The adoption of this new piece of legislation reflected the pressing need for the harmonisation of water reuse practises across Europe and was perceived as a milestone towards the transition to a circular economy for water resources. A few months after its implementation, Water Reuse Europe is organising a webinar to gauge the impact of this new legislative tool on agriculture from end-users’ perspectives.
