Symposium 2011 "Singularities in Wastewater Reuse"


The Water Research Institute of the University of Barcelona organizes annually a Symposium on water-related items since the year 2007. In the year 2011, Watewater Reuse is the subject which will be considered from different points of view considering that the Institute is multidisciplinary since it was founded by the University of Barcelona, gathering researchers from 8 faculties. Several approaches to reuse are to be discussed from the juridical, economical or scientific points of view. Health considerations as well as the opinions of the International Agencies and the Administration will be exposed. Technicians —Microbiology, Wastewater Treatment— and end-users —farmers, gardeners— will also expose their ideas. All together would offer an open panorama on present reuse singularities.
