About the Water Reuse Europe Innovation prize

The aim of the Water Reuse Europe Innovation Prize is to reward the professionals who are breaking new ground in the design and delivery of water reuse projects and showcase projects and initiatives which are at the forefront of reuse practice in Europe. Back in 2017, our first award was presented to Aquabio for their water reuse solution at Bakkavor’s Cucina Sano site in Boston, Lincolnshire, UK. In 2019, the Water Reuse Europe Innovation Prize went to the new indirect potable reuse scheme of Mörbylånga in Sweden. Our 2021 Innovation Prize will be awarded on the 28JAN2022 during our Webinar on Industrial Reuse.

Entries are judged by an award jury made up of the directors of Water Reuse Europe. Submissions are judged against three equally weighted criteria; (i) novelty and innovation, (ii) effective collaboration; (iii) impact.
