Flemish Government grants subsidy to Waterkracht
The Flemish government this spring called on companies to invest in the reuse of treated wastewater. Much of the treated sewage today ends up in waterways and flows away. To change this, the Flemish government offered 11 million euros in subsidies for companies willing to invest. The call was part of the Blue Deal, the Flemish government’s project against water scarcity and drought.
Now five investment projects have been selected, together good for almost 155 million euros. Waterkracht is one of the five selected investment projects.

Waterkracht, an initiative that is part of securing the supply of water, is a collaboration between water-link, Ekopak, PMV and Aquafin. These parties are joining forces to reuse the treated wastewater from Antwerp households as process water for companies in the Port of Antwerp.
As of 2025, Waterkracht aims to provide 20 billion gallons of treated wastewater.
