20 Mar 2019 - 21 Mar 2019 | Brussels, Belgium

Agenda

Water Market Europe 2019 is focusing on the Food&Drink sector which requires, in terms of technological solutions, almost the totality of most innovating water technologies, covers the full water cycle and has a high impact on climate challenges.
As fresh water is becoming a scarce resource, innovative and concrete solutions should make possible and affordable to recycle/reuse water and create close loops particularly in the industrial processes and make residual wastewater available for other purposes such as adjacent industries, farming, bio-based industries, and communities.
