Water-Renew is an EU LIFE Environment1 funded portfolio collaborative research project led by WRc Group in partnership with Queen’s University Belfast and Cranfield University. The project aims to move the concept of tertiary wastewater treatment using renewable energy crops closer to commercial application in the UK.

The UK Government needs to meet the demands of society to prevent the potential adverse effects of climate change and water pollution from society as a whole. A major legislative driver is the Water Framework Directive (WFD) (EC, 2000) which came into force on 22nd December 2000 and is “the most substantial piece of EC water legislation to date," requiring "all inland and coastal waters to reach "good status" by 2015. It will do this by establishing a river basin district structure within which demanding environmental objectives will be set, including ecological targets for surface waters” (Defra, 2005).
