Presentation of the RE-Desalination Action Group

Presentation of the RE-Desalination Action Group

The Conference and Exhibition "Desalination for the Environment, Clean Water and Energy" will take place at the Grand Resort Hotel in Limassol Cyprus, 11-15 May.

The conference on desalination for the environment will be devoted to advances towards providing fresh water for all, at affordable cost and at economical energy requirements. With limited and depleting natural sources, desalination can supplement some of the critically lacking amounts of water needed for sustainable development. Its place in the water cycle will be discussed.

The conference will overview the most recent developments in desalination technology, its cost and extent of application, including socio-economic and environmental issues. It will bring together research scientists, decision makers, managers, design engineers and operators from water companies, industries, government departments, consulting firms, research institutes and universities.

The place of industry, research and government decision making in this booming market will be addressed.

Why and how desalination should be integrated into the national or regional water management plans, ensuring socio-economic and environmental benefits, will also be a focal point of the conference.

On the evening of Monday 12th, a special event will take place at 19:00: the presentation of the Action Group "Renewable Energy Desalination". The purpose is to disseminate the objectives and activities of the Action Group, as well as to interact with the attending stakeholders for discussing the main barriers for the implementation of the technologies.
