New Technology for Infrastructure - The World of Tomorrow

 

World Leader on Water Recycling Technologies

2.15pm, Monday, 20 November 

Sofitel Wentworth Hotel, Sydney

 

Professor Enrico Drioli, director, Institute for Membrane Technology,
University of Calabria, Italy and a world leader on water recycling
technologies, is in Australia next week to present the latest information on
water recycling technologies currently under consideration or development in
Australia and around the world.

 

His address “New Integrated Water Treatments and Production Modes for City
Planning” will be made at New Technology for Infrastructure – The World of
Tomorrow, the annual symposium of the Australian Academy of Technological
Sciences and Engineering, which is being held at the Sofitel Wentworth,
Sydney, on 20-21 November.

Media are welcome to attend.


This Symposium asks what bold innovative technologies will leapfrog the
present into the future in the areas of water, energy, health,
communications and transport, and how such infrastructure can be planned and
financed.

Professor Drioli will be addressing many of the issues of water treatment
which affect Australia – resource recovery, potable reuse, desalination and
supply security, with case studies from Australia and worldwide. 

 

His session is at 2.15pm on Monday, 20 Nov at the Sofitel Wentworth in
Phillip Street.

 

Another speaker who is a nuclear engineering specialist will be addressing
the use of nuclear power for desalination plants.

 

Dr Bertrand Barré is Scientific Advisor for the AREVA Group and first
Chairman and still a member of the Standing Advisory Group on Nuclear Energy
which advises the Director General of the International Atomic Energy
Agency.

 

Media kits and materials will be available at the media room. For further
