Water treatment technologies are a promising solution to growing fresh water shortages around the world, but to be sustainable the processing energy needs to be provided by renewable sources.
The workshop is a forum for the exchange of information about projects related to water treatment technologies integrated with renewable energy sources, and the creation of partnerships between curiosity-driven researchers and industry representatives.
It is facilitated by the Water: Effective Technologies and Tools (WETT) Research Centre.
