Almar Water Solutions participated as a sponsor and speaker at the International Conference on Water Reuse and Recycling held in Valencia, Spain, and organized by the International Desalination Association (IDA), in collaboration with the Spanish Association for Desalination and Reuse (AEDyR). The event, which took place from 24 to 27 June, brought together the leading companies in the water sector and the most renowned experts in the field of water reuse.
Carlos Cosín, CEO of Almar Water Solutions, was the moderator of the event’s main panel discussion, “The Big Debate: Water Reuse Regulations in Europe, USA and Asia”, where experts from each of those areas involved in the development of these regulations offered their opinions and experiences.
