Tedagua explores the challenges and future of the sector at the Quality Water Summit 2023
- The event, organized by iAgua, featured the presence of Raúl Fernández, Engineering Director, and Luis Miguel Arauzo, Commercial Director, in two sessions where the main issues and challenges facing the sector in the coming years were discussed.
- Both shared their vision with the rest of the participants on important topics such as reuse, circular economy, or the future of technology to optimize all processes in water treatment.
The Roca Madrid Gallery hosted the closing of the Quality Water Summit 2023 last week, a reference event in the sector that brings together different actors in the field of water treatment. Once again, Tedagua actively participated as one of the main sponsors of the event organized by iAgua, sharing impressions, success stories, and the company's experience in its long trajectory as a reference in the sector.
Wednesday's session focused on "Biofactories and Reuse" and was sponsored by Tedagua. The event began with the intervention of Raúl Fernández, Engineering Director, who exposed the reality we are facing in Spain of water resource scarcity and the need to decisively bet on water reuse and circular economy. He also offered different examples of how Tedagua has been able to develop technologies that make the most of the processes in integral water management.
The last day of the event consisted of several round tables to discuss the future of the sector. In the first one, on the future of technology, the presence of Luis Miguel Arauzo, Commercial Director, highlighted that "we have to optimize the technologies already in development, we have to take a step further. For the issue of networks, digitization is going to be fundamental".
Then, the speakers talked about which technologies are going to prevail the most. From Tedagua, Luis Miguel Arauzo pointed out the improvement of desalination and reuse technologies: "We are developing topics such as floating desalination and, in reuse, there are possible processes that could be developed, such as direct osmosis, which are going to mark the future".
Finally, the speakers reflected on the challenges facing the water quality sector in the coming years, such as new regulations. For Luis Miguel Arauzo, the concession issue in Spain, which is not yet developed, will mark the immediate future of the sector: "Water companies have to dare to offer complete packages, for example, the use of reversible power plants together with water treatment".
