The conference will address two main topics:
The 3rd Water Research Conference aims to present results of state-of-the-art exploration in water/wastewater treatment and discuss conceptually novel ideas that are necessary to develop well-tuned energy- and resource-efficient treatment technologies designed to remove a wide range of known and emerging pollutants and/or to recover all useful resources like chemicals, nutrients, energy and water itself.
As such, the conference will provide a unique opportunity for the presentation of results of cutting-edge exploratory activities, associated technological applications. Most importantly, there will be an extensive exchange of ideas leading to a shared understanding of the most promising and critically important directions to achieve water security and the improvement of water quality and the recovery of resources on local and global scales.
The program will be particularly focused on water treatment approaches that utilise highly efficient processes, for instance those of catalytic nature or involving interfacial interactions and other microscopic level controls of transformation of pollutants in engineered systems. Specific challenges on recovering resources from water/wastewater, especially water reuse, nutrient/energy/chemicals recovery will be addressed.
