Cork, Ireland, 2013/03/26 - BlueTech Research, in partnership with the IUVA, NSF International and B2B webinars, is pleased to announce the details of the next interactive web-conference on April 10th at 11:00-12:30 pm EST; 4:00 PM-5:30 pm GMT - BlueTechResearch.com.
The rate of water re-use is expected to increase. Growth is projected in industrial applications and municipal markets, including both centralised and decentralised systems. As water re-use becomes more widely practiced, this will increase the market for a range of treatment technologies, including advanced biological treatment, macro filtration, ultraviolet disinfection, membrane filtration, and potentially advanced oxidation. These treatment technologies have the potential to create opportunities for real-time on-line monitoring and sensor equipment that provide water quality guarantees. Important questions that this webinar will address:
• How will water be re-used?
• What regulations will govern water re-use?
• What technology and market opportunities will this create?
• What are the differences between the following types of water re-use: direct potable, non-potable, and unplanned re-use?
• What does Title 22 approval mean? How do you get approval? What standards must be attained?
• NSF issued standards for certification of water re-use systems. What is NSF/ANSI Standards 350 and 35?
In many ways, regulations struggle to keep up with what is technically possible and theoretically needed. In the absence of water re-use regulations, the California Title 22 Code has become the de-facto standard for water re-use. The whole area of water re-use is becoming more complex, with purple pipes, yellow water, grey water, black water entering the mix.
Our team of leading global experts in this field will explore the issue and shed light on this large area of change that will have a profound effect on water management in the next decade.
These points will also be explored and discussed:
• Why direct potable water re-use is the most economically viable option for water re-use and how any degree of safety and assurance required can be guaranteed;
• Why re-use water is the most economically viable and energy efficient source of water in regards to the marginal;
• Why water re-use will not create a market for new technologies, but expand the market for existing technologies;
• How decentralised systems will facilitate re-use.
• Andreas Kolch, Former President of the IUVA and member, O2 Environmental Technology Assesment Group
• Tom Bruursema, General Manager of Environmental and Sustainability Services, NSF International;
• George Tchobanoglous, Professor, UC Davis;
• Kati Bell, Project Manager, CDM Smith;
• Cathy Chang, Water Quality Program Manager, Water Replenishment District of Southern California.
