ADVANCES IN WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

Over the years, the exemplary panel of the conference has ensured strict scientific regimen, paving way for a rewarding experience in entirety. After brainstorming over the water and wastewater industry, and keeping in mind trending ideas, the conference theme is decided, and varies every year.
THEMES AND OBJECTIVES
Clean water is an essential resource for people and their environments throughout the world. Those who provide effective solutions for wastewater treatment play a major role in returning clean, safe water back to its source. The increasing water scarcity caused by the gap between supply and demand for water is forcing the world to understand that water management is no longer an operational matter, but rather an optimal manner. Water resources are under pressure from continuing population growth and urbanisation, rapid industralisation, and expanding and intensifying food production, particularly in developing countries and in urban areas. Urban populations may nearly double from current 3.4 billion to 6.4 billion by 2050.
There are huge potentials for the water and wastewater treatment plants across developing countries. Advanced technologies, plant upgrades and new wastewater treatment plants will be required to meet new demands, creating opportunities for local and international players. Besides, World’s water resource will not change but the amount of wastewater produced is increasing, and the infrastructure and management systems are not adequate for this increasing volume. Managing wastewater is intrinsically linked to management of the entire water chain. It is essential that wastewater management is considered as part of integrated, ecosystem-based management that operates across sectors and borders, freshwater and marine.
Considering the current scenarios and challenges, the theme for the 12th Edition of WATMAN 2018 has been derived to “ADVANCES IN WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.” The sessions at the conference are planned in view of its impact on the industry and the need of the hour. The paper presentations at the conference, so far, have always been imperatively focused and delved deep into technicality and practice.
