Monday, November 4, 2019
10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Location: Amsterdam RAI
    Session: Smarter and greener solutions for urban water systems

    Theme: Blue-Green solutions for (urban) resilience
    Organiser: TU Delft, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Oasen Drinkwater
    Other organisations: World Waternet, International Water Association, Blue-Green System Journal

    We need to redesign the water system in favour of smarter and greener solutions for future cities. Such actions should be taken as global adaptation to climate change, to maximise resource and energy efficiency, minimise CO2 emissions and improve the quality of urban livelihoods. In the last decade, new resource and energy efficient concepts have been proposed in the water sector, some are applied, such as nature-based low cost water purification e.g. river bank filtration, energy/resource recovery from waste water treatment plants and energy recovery from drinking water for space cooling or heating. In this session, we invite participants from science-policy-business backgrounds to share their experiences and latest progresses regarding the resource and energy efficiency of urban water solutions
