Wastewater Board Braunschweig

The Wastewater Board Braunschweig is a water and soil association on the basis of the Water Association Law from 1991 and therefore a statutory corporation.
The idea of the Braunschweig model, developed by the Wastewater Board Braunschweig, is unique in Germany.  Wastewater from the city and bio-energy from the countryside are combined to create a water-nutrient-energy cycle.
The wastewater from the city of Braunschweig and a number of boroughs covered by the Gifhorn water board is purified in the wastewater treatment plant Steinhof. The purified water is then subsequently used for the irrigation of agricultural areas belonging to our members. In this way the Wastewater Board Braunschweig is able to ensure the production of food and energy plants. The energy plants will be used for the production of biogas in the biogas plant, whereby electricity and heating for several thousand Braunschweig households are produced.
