IFAT 2018 - Plant construction for water treatment and wastewater treatment

Hydraulic engineering and well construction

This topic encompasses in equal measure the development and maintenance of waterways, water pollution control, coastal and flood defenses, irrigation systems, drainage technology, and the construction and rehabilitation of wells.

Well construction and recycling

How can a well be sunk inexpensively and safely, how can quality and long-term operation be guaranteed, and how can it be repaired quickly and cost-efficiently should the worst happen? Innovative developments in the construction and regeneration of wells secure access to water.

Irrigation and dewatering technology

IFAT exhibitors will present modern drainage technology procedures and components that enable the removal of unwanted groundwater and rainwater efficiently and economically without harming the environment. The environmental technology industry also offers modern solutions for the ‘opposite direction’: Current irrigation methods bring this essential resource to where it is needed in ways which are economically and ecologically sensible.

Flood and coastal protection

Floods and storm tides cost lives and cause millions of dollars of damage every year around the world. We can assume that if nothing else, the impact of climate change will continue to increase the urgency of finding suitable defense solutions over the next few years. A sustainable coastal and flood protection system, preferably one engineered to have a preventative impact, therefore forms an essential part of any sustainable water management policy and is thus one of the focuses at IFAT.

It is precisely the increasing issue of flooding that requires waterways to be carefully built and maintained. For example, retention areas need to be recovered, flood plains established, streams and rivers rewilded, and their banks strengthened naturally. The products and procedures connected to this and demonstrated at IFAT help to not only realize hydraulic concepts that are in harmony with nature, but also improve people's quality of life.
