Water Reuse Europe, the trade association for the European water reuse sector, will hold their first annual conference and exhibition on Innovations in Water Reuse on 9th-10th October 2017 in Bruges. The conference brings together reuse scheme developers, technology suppliers, regulators, researchers, and end-users from across Europe to share perspectives and knowledge. The event includes discussions on the future of the European water reuse sector as a major element of the circular economy, showcases innovative reuse schemes and technologies, and provides a networking opportunity for professionals, companies and institutions involved in the sector.
