The conference:

 

  • Highlighted the biggest challenges facing the water industry and offer solutions

 

  • Examined cutting-edge advances in water and wastewater treatment and processing technologies
     
  • The event kicked off with an overview from Ian Bernard of British Water highlighting the current fragmented state of the industry and the need for the UK and the rest of the world to work together on its R&D, one potential mechanism being through the formation of a new SB Water Innovation Platform.

 

  • Adel Sharif of Surrey University then went on to discuss how desalination technologies were the way forward, specifically through techniques such as manipulated osmosis.

 

  • Veolia Water were represented by Arnaud David who pointed out that there is a real need for the development of low carbon technologies for water treatment companies as they are still behind those available for the wastewater industry.

 

  • Richard Gueterbock described how Clearfleau were working in the sector on aslightly different level, converting the waste effluents of small companies into energy via anaerobic digestion processes.

 

  • Eric Mayes of Apaclara gave the final talk of the session arguing that the use of nanotechnology in membrane research and catalysed breakdown of waste products in water may give it the edge over desalination due to the resultant cost benefits.
