Water, water everywhere… but most of it is not fit to drink. Around one billion people do not have access to clean water.

Untreated or undertreated sewage not only threatens our health but contaminates water sources and the oceans.

The main sources of pollution are high amounts of nitrates and phosphates from wastewater and agricultural run-off.

Dutch scientists have developed a new water purification technology. The plant, in Epe in the Netherlands, has a new and innovative sewage treatment system.
