Wednesday 18 November | 15:00-16:30
The NPS17 Water Webinar creates a platform for experts from various sectors and young process technology researchers. The webinar enables discussion about water management strategies, challenges, opportunities and provides an outlook on the production processes in the Netherlands and worldwide to ‘Sustain the Waters future’.
Water is our most valuable resource and its availability is getting scarce worldwide. Between 2010 and 2050 the need of fresh water will continue to rise globally, putting more pressure on water resources.
This could increasingly lead to the use of non-renewable or transboundary water resources, which is in particular getting more evident in big cities worldwide. Therefore, water management strategies are needed to assure that every human has and, also in the future, will have access to fresh drinking water. These strategies include reducing the use of fresh water in different sectors as well as developing and optimizing water treatment technologies.
