September 12, Side Event at the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition: Circular Economy – Taking stock of the value of (waste)water

Circular economy has gained momentum, in particular, to prevent or at least lessen the pressures from growing and dynamic socio-economic and business-oriented ecosystems. In this session, we will show and discuss the value of and value in (waste)water with a particular focus on creating systems solutions, symbiosis and value chains in the transition to a circular economy.

Following keynotes on water and energy in the circular economy, a series of short presentations on several initiatives related to water reuse and material recovery will be presented. The short presentations will be followed by round table discussions to address critical questions and issues on water reuse and material recovery in the circular economy.
