This 1 ½ day workshop, chaired by Ralph Exton (GE Power & Water), was held May 1 -2 in San Antonio, Texas. TheWorkshop examined the various factors that drive decisions about water use and reuse and to identify technologies and strategies to design efficient, productive and economically feasible water reuse and conservation projects.
The purpose of this workshop was to examine various factors that drive decisions about water use and reuse and to identify technologies and strategies to design efficient, productive and economically feasible water reuse and conservation projects.
- Regulatory Climate: The current trends and future regulations that affect decisions for and against water reuse and conservation.
- Industry Perspective: An examination of the hurdles and opportunities for water reuse and conservation in industrial sites and to the role of other factors such as scarcity, regulation, and corporate sustainability issues in these decisions.
- Technology and Applications: A review of commercialized and developmental technologies for industrial water reuse and conservation and application strategies.
- Practical Implementation: This session built on the previous three and consisted of two panels taking the audience through real life water reuse scenarios and how to implement the projects.
- Final Panel: The final panel consisted of speakers from the other sessions and was a discussion with the audience on whether industrial water reuse and conservation projects a truly a productive, efficient and economic proposition or a pipe dream.
