Joining industry forces
Industrial Water Leadership Forum and Technology Exchange 2018 will be held on May 31st, the first day of Aquatech, at the InterContinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC, Shanghai, China. Jointly hosted by Ecolab, Global Water Intelligence (GWI), Water Stewardship Australia (AWS Asia Pacific) and Aquatech Global Events under this year’s theme of Wastewater Recycle and Reuse, China Water Risk (CWR) is the supporting organisation of the event. 


Water Ten Rules highlighted
In 2015, China’s State Council published the Water Pollution Prevention & Control Action Plan (“Water Ten Rules”) to dramatically reduce water pollution and strengthen water management. With the 2017 deadline of several goals outlined in the Water Ten just passed, the country is taking stock on its progress towards meeting these targets. This year’s Industrial Water Leadership Forum and Technology Exchange will address challenges and discuss new opportunities laid down by the Water Ten Rules.


Strong speaker line up
The keynotes’ spokespeople are from Chinese Academy for Environmental Planning, Global Water Intelligence, Ecolab and a leading end user of Water Stewardship. They will deliver speeches on the latest water stewardship policies, regulations and innovations. During the two panel sessions, the speakers from water stewardship association, industrial end users and technology providers will focus on the topics of water reuse trends and corporate sustainability agenda as well as the technology solutions to maximise the value from wastes.
