The IfS/AIChE Water Workshop: Materials, Proceedings, Outcomes
AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
Monday, March 22, 2010 - 8:40am to 9:00am
AIChE's Institute for Sustainability (IfS) hosted a water workshop in Cincinnati on August 13, 2009. Over 60 participants attended from industry, universities, water municipalities, professional societies, and government. The goal of the workshop was to provide a forum on the science required to sustainably manage the nation's water resources. Challenges, knowledge gaps, research needs, and means for translating research into sustainable water management were discussed. This report will highlight the materials prepared for the workshop (see http://www.aiche.org/IFS/Conferences/Workshops/WaterWorkshop.aspx and the links there, particularly ?Water Workshop Publications?) and summarize workshop proceedings and outcomes.
