Synopsis

The size of the global water market has been estimated to be greater than $500 billion making water one of the three largest non-financial industries in terms of value of assets deployed. Providing clean water to the world’s ever increasing population becomes ever more challenging as clean water sources become depleted and threatened by human wastes and industrial pollution. While earth is a water rich planet, what is in short supply is clean water that people can afford to buy.

Industry leaders and experts will share their insights on economics and investment strategies, novel and proven solutions, along with what’s new and what’s next in water.

Join us as we discuss the challenges and opportunities in municipal water, desalination, waste water, industrial water e.g. produced water in oil and gas exploration, ballast water for ships, food & beverage, mining and metals extraction etc.

We are interested in papers that deal with the above topics and encourage you to submit for review.

*If interested in organizing a specific business panel or symposium, please contact Regina Ramazzini .
