The European Water Technology Platform, WssTP and the European Sustainable Chemistry Technology Platform, SusChem, in collaboration with the EIP Water, will launch the pre-conference workshop ‘Industry Water: From Single Use to Integrated Management’ , which will take place in the afternoon of Tuesday 26 September 2017 in Porto.
This workshop builds on an earlier workshop organised in Brussels, 20th April 2017, and prepares specific messages for impact on the audience of the EIP Water Conference in Porto (27 and 28 September 2017).
These messages relate to the industrial water reuse as stressed for instance at the WssTP Water Innovation Europe 2017 and are built from the 4 corners of the Value of Water model, i.e. Sensoring, Big Data, Analysis and Modelling, and Governance.
Note: This registration is valid for the pre-conference workshop only. You will have to register separately for the EIP Water conference at www.portowaterinnovationweek.eu
Participation will be free of charge.
Recommendations and conclusions from the earlier Brussels’ workshop in a nutshell:
Sensor development provides a unique opportunity for enhancing the Value of Water. Advanced sensor development is required to ensure continuous understanding and control of water quality. Handling of dynamic water systems requires advanced sensors. Full implementation, reliable operation costs and maintenance are important.
Identifying the value of the water system in generating and creating data is central to its economic value. The creation of a resilient basis for cyber security and privacy legislation is necessary, as no holistic overview currently exists. Links between data silos and pockets of data should be established and prioritized.
Many models for enhancing water management exist in academia or within RTOs. But these methodologies need to be brought into context before moving to the next pilot phase. It is necessary to identify models and tailor them to the requirements of users in order to develop more efficient water systems, while observing the interactions and implications.
Smart governance models vary from region to region. The selection process for an appropriate governance design requires extensive consideration. Education and communication is crucial for its successful understanding and implementation.
