Buetgenbach – Eastern Belgium

Buetgenbach is a small municipality in the German Community in Eastern Belgium.

The inhabitants number about 5.000 people.

That’s about 1.000+ families, if we assume the average family to be mother, father and 3 children.

If every family invests 1.000 Euro the Com-op could very well take over the waste-water purification plant and the recycling yard.

Both are separated by a very short distance, a merger would make a lot of sense. Also a TOTEM System can be installed there.

After the treatment the water flows into the creek.

As can be seen the IE of the water is wasted. A watermill could generate electricity!
