In 2013, DNV GL's CEO Henrik O. Madsen embraced EnviroNor and established a project team to verify, prove and enhance the EnviroNor Concept. With successful DNV GL approval, EnviroNor and DNV GL proudly launched the Concept in February 2014 under the "Aqua Recovery Solution" name. To date, DNV GL, World Wildlife Foundation and Norwegian Red Cross have become EnviroNor's collaborative partners.

The results confirmed that the EnviroNor Concept is technically and commercially viable. Each water project investment will obviously vary, according to the location, size, design and technical solution selected by the client.
