Water treatment and reuse III and the water-energy nexus

December 09, 2010


The conference will provide a highly effective forum to discuss research and development in the advancement and use of technologies for purifying industrial and municipal waste water for reuse and the latest development of integrated technologies for water treatment. These will be intermingled with high level presentations of various technologies and scenarios to illustrate the flow of water within all areas of the energy sector, and especially within the sustainable energy development milieu. In addition, we will bring in discussion of existing projects that harvest energy from (or store energy within) water-based systems, and which seek to minimize the carbon footprint of water treatment processes.

Sessions/topics include

Water solutions for developing countries
Intensifying water reuse in the manufacturing process industries
Produced H2O
Water recovery and reuse for biofuels and biorefineries
Water for biomass-derived energy
Food and bioprocess industries: water use, recovery, and recycle
Co-generation of power and water
Water and power generation


The Program chair is Prof. John Pellegrino (University of Colorado, USA); co-chairs are Prof Ranil Wickramasinghe (Colorado State University, USA) and Prof. Glenn Lipscomb (University of Toledo, USA).

The Scientific Committee includes Prof. Jaeweon Cho (Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, Korea); Prof. João G. Crespo (Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal); Prof. Silvio Silvério da Silva (Universidade de São Paulo, Brasil); Prof. Jack Gilron (Ben Gurion University, Israel); Dr. Norman Li (NL Chem, USA); Prof. Raphael Semiat (Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Israel); Prof. Messias Borges Silva (Universidade de São Paulo, Brasil); Prof. Kamalesh Sirkar (New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA)

Conference participants will stay at the Gran Meliá Cancun, where the technical sessions will be held. The guest rooms are housed in five soaring, pyramid-shaped buildings. The public areas are towering and jungle-like, festooned with hanging plants, dripping with water and incorporating decorative elements - including statues, frescos and calendars - that reflect the Mayan motifs and culture.
