The Forum Water / Sewage focuses on all aspects of water supply and, with its wide range of topics, addresses all sectors equally—from the various industrial sectors to cities and municipalities.
Water 4.0, the treatment of process water or the separation of microplastics are just as relevant as cyber security and the protection of critical infrastructures in water management.
Just as crucial: the optimization of water cycles to make production processes more cost-efficient. Benefit from insights from different countries and regions and use the supporting program to stay up to date.
