DUBLIN, Ireland, Sept. 2, 2009 -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "European Biological Wastewater Treatment Systems Market" to their offering.

This Frost & Sullivan research service titled European Biological Wastewater Treatment Systems Market provides a comprehensive analysis of the biological wastewater treatment systems market in key regional markets of Europe. These include Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Benelux region (the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Belgium), Iberia (Spain and Portugal), Scandinavia (Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland) and the Alpine region (Austria and Switzerland). In this research, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following application sectors: municipal and industrial. Aerobic, anaerobic, membrane bioreactor (MBR) and innovative processes such as moving bed bioreactor (MBBR) are some of the technologies included in the research.

Stringent Legislation Promotes European Biological Wastewater Treatment Systems Market
The European biological wastewater treatment systems market is currently in the moderate growth stage of its life cycle. Supported by stringent legislation and increased investments, the market is on a path of steady expansion. "The major drivers for this market are the Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive (UWWTD) and the Industrial Pollution Prevention and Control Directive (IPPC) Directive," notes the analyst. "This will be positively reinforced by increasing investments by governments in upgrading and maintaining existing wastewater treatment plants."

Considerable opportunities for all products exist in developing markets such as Iberia and Italy. In the more developed markets such as Germany, France and the United Kingdom, the scope for more advanced and compact systems such as the MBR treatment systems and innovative processes-based systems like the MBBR is higher.

Conventional aerobic treatment technologies remain widely popular. There are growing opportunities for MBR systems in both municipal and industrial application sectors. Anaerobic systems and innovative processes comprising solutions such as MBBR systems are also making gains. The maximum potential for the various treatment systems exists in the municipal sector, as most of the sewage treatment systems across Europe are in the process of expansion, upgrades and maintenance.

The market is consolidated at the top by two to three companies with international presence, with a combined market share of nearly 51 percent. Increasing market consolidation is restricting the entry of new participants. "To succeed, companies need to focus on product innovations to match the latest treatment mandates and also overcome operational problems related to existing treatment systems," advises the analyst. "In addition, market participants need to keep pace with changing regulations related to discharge standards."
