WRE Conference and Exhibition on Innovations in Water Reuse 2017
WRE’s First Conference and Exhibition took place in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Bruges. Designated as a World Heritage Site by Unesco for its medieval heritage, the “Little Venice of the North” was the perfect location to bring together companies and organisations active in the water reuse sector for a two day event packed with presentations from prestigious speakers, discussions, and technical visits including to the world renowned Torreele Water Reclamation Scheme for indirect potable reuse.
The conference brought together reuse scheme developers, industry leaders, solution providers, technology suppliers, policy makers, researchers, end-users, and consultants to share experiences and perspectives on the current status of water reuse in Europe. The event was an informative experience as we discuss the importance and future of the European water reuse sector as a major component of the circular economy and reviewed how recent innovations in technology and management are delivering successful reuse schemes across the continent.
