IWA Regional Conference on
Wastewater Purification & Reuse
28th, 29th and 30th of March, 2012
Heraklion, Crete, Greece
Welcome to WWPR 2012
Whoever works with water knows that, wastewater can both be a helping tool, as well as a possible threat. It can be utilized, as an alternative water resource and help save millions of cubic meters of fresh water, or it can contaminate even larger amounts, if disposed improperly, threatening the lives of millions. In a world, that water demand is increasing, the importance of that simple statement is significant. Especially for arid and semiarid areas of the globe, exactly like those surrounding the Mediterranean region.
Aim of the Wastewater Purification and Reuse Regional Conference, is to gather, under one roof, all of you that your research, your business or your daily activity, is related to the purification of the wastewater and its reuse, irrelevant where that takes place and for what purpose. We believe that through the presentation and discussion of technical and scientific achievements, as well as the exchange of experiences that each of you will bring along, we will be able to increase the water reuse parameter as a tool and reduce the wastewater parameter as a threat.
We also believe that one of the most important ways to achieve that goal is through personal communication and interaction, as well as friendly relationships.
For all the above reasons we do hope that you will respond to our invitation.
