Session 13 – “Water Supply and Reuse – Part 1”

Session Background

Industrial water consumption makes up 22% of global water use (UNWATER 2012). As industrialisation in developing nations increases, industrial water use could potentially increase by a factor of five, strongly increasing pressure on water resources. Further, reusing water in industry has the potential to reduce the costs of water supply and wastewater treatment by industries. Wastewater can be reused in agriculture and within a business itself, or between several businesses through industrial symbiosis. Depending on the type and quality of the wastewater, it may either be reused directly, or treated before reuse (i.e. recycled).

Keywords: Water supply, wastewater treatment, reuse in industry and agriculture


  1. Assessment of the applicability of different technical solutions and tailored technical and business-to-business concepts.
  2. Overview on current good practice experience of industrial water reuse, especially in urban areas.
  3. Identification of research demand and future research proposals.

Session Plan

The session topic is introduced by a thematic keynote speech on general aspects of current water supply, water reuse options and challenges. The session will cover best practice examples, challenges, applicability of different technical solutions. The session finalizes with ideas that can be explored for joint research initiatives.

Organizing Institution

The exceed-Swindon network consists of 30 full member institutions worldwide. A renowned scientist who has his research focus on water problems represents each of these institutions. The network considers cooperation, education, and knowledge transfer within the water research and management area to be an indispensible condition for solving present and, in particular, further water-related problems. The mission, first, is to inspire and promote exceed-Swindon members in being an international community of academic and practice-oriented professionals, graduated students concerned with water, and a global source of knowledge.
