Fachvereinigung Betriebs- und Regenwassernutzung e.V. (fbr)

The mission of the water recycling and rain water association (fbr) is to promote water recycling and rain water utilisation and to provide a focal point for companies and organisations which are interested in or involved in these activities.
The association addresses all aspects of environmental protection and scientific research. It promotes the use of recycled water and rain water as a subset of ecological water policy. fbr seeks to work closely with all eco-focused organisations and institutions which are actively involved in water management issues, using this framework to facilitate the creation of holistic solutions which are broadly accepted by society and to discuss and develop strategies which are sustainable in the long term.

Anyone who is interested in or involved in water recycling and rain water utilisation is encouraged to use fbr as a point of contact or information source.

The association was formed in response to the continued neglect of ecological water management principles, which is evident at all levels of society during the planning and execution of residential development projects. In order to provide for future generations, eco-friendly and responsible solutions must be identified which will enable us to retain and restore the natural water cycle.

Individuals, companies or institutions which are interested in or involved in water recycling and rain water utilisation may become members of the organization.
