About the Conference

The two-day international conference to be held in Santa Margherita, Portofino, Italy, May 17-19, 2015, will be held in cooperation with the Rotary Club La Spezia and part of the conference proceeds will be donated to a water-related humanitarian project.

The conference is centered on the social responsibility that we all have towards future generations and the need for innovation to generate new and ever more environmentally friendly options to support water needs.  The agenda will focus primarily on new horizons for the development of desalination and water treatment technology that will enable the development and implementation of renewable desalination and the pursuit of more sustainable options.

Over the two days we will address growing requirements for desalination and advanced water treatment in new infrastructure markets such as mining, energy, oil and gas, and so forth, where the judicious application of these solutions could bring about a sharp contribution towards cost and energy savings as well as environmental stewardship.

Registration is now closed.  Registration is available onsite only at the conference.
