Water scarcity is turning into an increasing global problem. At Industrietage Wassertechnik 2015, the DWA/Dechema conference on water technology, Dr Andreas Hauser, Head of TÜV SÜD Water Services, will give a technical talk on water recycling and the realisation of industrial water cycles. Industrietage Wassertechnik 2015 will take place on 10/11 November 2015 in Frankfurt/Main.
At present reuse of reclaimed water is primarily limited to agriculture and various sectors of industry despite the enormous demand in more general areas. According to Dr Andreas Hauser, the main factors preventing a wider use of reclaimed water include the lack of legal framework conditions, water tariffs that are not designed to favour the re-use of water and a lack of understanding of water cycles. Presenting Singapore's NEWater Initiative, the TÜV SÜD expert shows how to efficiently and successfully close a water cycle,
The water, energy and food nexus and rise in environmental awareness necessitate increasingly complex projects that link water treatment and re-use, energy recycling and nutrient utilisation. TÜV SÜD Water Services supports investors, entrepreneurs, technology providers and operators with the design and implementation of practical, consistent, efficient and sustainable solutions that ensure high quality throughout the entire life cycle.

The water technology conference Industrietage Wassertechnik has evolved into one of the key events of industrial water technology in German-speaking countries and will be organised for the fifth time this year as a joint initiative by DECHEMA and DWA. The event harnesses the force field between science and practice to discuss new findings and link them to the challenges of application.
