Treating process water in the metal and automotive industries
On 24 May 2011, REMONDIS Aqua’s industry division, in collaboration with the Institute of Environmental Technology and Management at the University of Witten/Herdecke, will be holding a specialist conference on the subject of the treatment of process water in the metal and automotive industries. REMONDIS Aqua is also cooperating with the UN Water Decade Programme and the North Rhine-Westphalia Efficiency Agency on this.
The event is taking place in the “Großer Saal” conference room in the Research and Development Centre (Forschungs- und Entwicklungszentrums, FEZ) at 44 Alfred-Herrhausen-Straße in Witten. Experts will be given the opportunity to exchange views on ongoing improvements in the treatment of process water in the metal and automotive industries, whether for re-use in the process or for discharge. The reason is the fiercely competitive environment, which is driving the process of constant optimisation – and especially in areas of infrastructure such as water technology. It is also necessary to adapt to the changing legal framework conditions. The speakers at the conference will give participants an overview of the latest technology and new trends in water treatment. Additionally, there will be presentations demonstrating ways of optimising performance and giving examples of successful industry practice.
