Innovation in the water sector

Innovation is a key factor for the success of the water companies. There are currently many challenges faced by the industry, such as globalization, financial crisis or competitiveness.

On the other hand, water problems in the world (more than 600 million people lack access to improved drinking water sources) aggravated by climate change have to be faced with creativity and innovation.

In this presentation all these aspects will be considered as well as innovation as an incentive for the development of new processes, technologies, business models, etc.

The experience of Valoriza Agua in this field will be described, with the description of some relevant R&D projects.
