Delegation from Denmark visits NWE flagship projects to develop a similar project
On April 27th a group of Danish experts from science and project development visited the NWE PILLS project partners. In the city of Copenhagen a waste water treatment plant for a hospital with 900 beds is planned and the Danish project group was looking for shining examples all over Europe - and found the PILLS project. In a study visit the German project of the Emschergenossenschaft was chosen for a site visit as this project fulfils the expectations best to work as a model. Discussions showed that the questions PILLS addresses are coming more and more to other countries and regions, too: How can we prevent our water bodies from micropollutants, how can we especially eliminate pharmaceutical residues? The visitors want to keep in touch with the PILLS partners and agreed to cooperate in a follow-up project: For the 10th NWE project call a new project `noPILLS´ will submit an application and Denmark will send participants to its `advisory board´.
