The current strict institutional framework, combined with growing social awareness, has created favourable conditions for wastewater management plants investments. Considering the fact that waste contains various polluting and infectious substances, waste management constitutes a necessity. Wastewater management requires an integrated collection and processing system, including sewerage network and drainage system works, waste processing units and sludge management.
Wastewater management applications concern both residences as well as enterprises that produce waste, companies managing waste and, of course, the local government:
The installation of wastewater management equipment and plants is subject to certain licensing procedures for the equipment installation, the processing procedure, the waste disposal and the use of processed wastewater. The managing body is required to obtain approvals – for some or all of the above mentioned units/processes, on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the type of processing, the size and location of the investment, approval is granted by the Ministry of the Environment, Energy and Climate Change, the Decentralized Administration, or the Region.
