Aquafit4Use – Mid-term conference

At the same time of the Anque International Conference, the mid-term conference of the Aquafit4Use project will also take place in Oviedo.

The AquaFit4use project aims at a more sustainable use of water in the main water consuming industries. Through development and implementation of new, reliable and cost-effective technologies, tools and methods, a far-going closure of the water cycle in these industries is foreseen. Consequently, the intake of fresh water and the disposal of wastewater will be reduced significantly as will the burden imposed by this on the environment.

The mid-term conference will address the following topic:

  • Sustainable water management assessment
  • Modelling
  • Membrane treatments
  • Advanced treatments
  • Good Examples: Industrial Cases
