Safe, secure, and functional supply of water: the role of nanotechnologies

This question will be tackled during the conference “Nanotechnologies and nanomaterials to the market and “Nanomaterials R & D Highlights” which is scheduled for next 21-23 November in Venice.

 The growth of human population and the associated increase of water consumption for human use, agriculture and critical industries, poses a significant challenge in maintaining adequate supply and acceptable quality of water.
How nanotechnologies can help to find smarter ways of using and managing water resources, to meet the soaring demand of clean water, will be the focus of an half a day session (November 23rd@ NanotechItaly 2012). Key speakers include:

  • Enrico Drioli, Italian Institute on Membrane Technology (CNR-ITM), Italy
  • Inge Gennè, Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) and coordinator of the EU Nano4Water Consortium, Belgium
  • Nora Savage, Environmental Protection Agency, USA
  • Rafi Semiat, Director of the Grand Water Research Institute and Head of the Rabin Desalination Laboratory at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Israel
  • Roberto Zocchi, President, Centro Sviluppo Materiali, Italy

To share expertise and ideas for partnership with the other conference delegates and speakers, and establish contacts with them in face-to-face meetings during the NanotechItaly 2012 event is open the NanotechItaly networking tool
