Special Symposium

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. This special symposia focuses specifically on advanced and emerging technologies for improvements in purification, generation, processing, filteration, manufacturing processes, waste use and local/global access and distributoion. 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 identify the world's top innvations that are changing the future of water for our planet. Please submit your abstrat today!
