The Emscher sewage canal (AKE), also known as the Emscherkanal, is the central construction project for the conversion of the Emscher system from open to closed sewage disposal as part of the renaturation measures of the Emscher. It is a parallel to the river Emscher emerging underground sewer in the Ruhr area. The 51 km long canal begins north of the Dortmund-Deusen sewage treatment plant in Dortmund and terminates at the Emscher estuary in Dinslaken. It absorbs the waste water previously discharged directly through the river.
