The 'water-kilometer' as an instrument to encourage efficient water use

You are here

Last week, CAPTURE Water fit-for-use professor Korneel Rabaey, together with PhD student Arjen Van de Walle, published an opinion piece in Knack (NL), calling for more structural and drastic measures to encourage actions towards a more drought-resistant future. In the past, the 'W-peil' was proposed, where new constructions would get a certain certification comparable to the 'E-peil' for energy, but for their water efficiency. In this piece, they propose the water kilometer as an instrument in this type of legislation.
