Young Water Solutions gladly invites you to the 2018 Young Water Fellowship Exclusive Pitching Night.
When ? Thursday 13th September 2018 – 6:30 pm. Where ? Thon Hotel EU [Roi de la Loi 75, 1040 Etterbeek]
The Young Water Fellowship is an initiative by Young Water Solutions that empowers young community leaders from low and middle income countries with financial and technical support to launch their own social business initiatives to solve local water issues in their communities.
The 2018 Young Water Fellows will join a one month training programme in social entrepreneurship and exchange ideas with international experts and leaders. The programme will culminate with the 2018 Young Water Fellowship Pitching Night on September 13th.
You are invited to attend the Pitching Night, where you will be inspired by the stories and innovative ideas of these outstanding young leaders and their water projects. Each of them will give an exclusive presentation of his / her water project, followed by a networking reception [walking dinner] during which you can get to know the Fellows.

During the session of “Relations of Rural Water and Food Security to the Water SDG“, A. Lo Porto gave a presentation on “SDGs implementation in Europe” which was held in parallel with the CEWP Joint Steering Committee.
The audience was of around 150 participants, with among others Chinese researchers and practitioners. In the presentation A. Lo Porto discussed the differences between the current approach based on SDGs and the previous one based on MDGs.
It was showed how “water” is a transversal subject present in all the SDGs. Furthermore, the SDGs, in which the issue of water use in agriculture is prominent ,were also discussed and analysed.
A. Lo Porto also showed that to achieve the goals a new “model for water-smart society” must be conceived and implemented in which the innovation must play its role based on a multi-stakeholder approach.
On the 28th of June, A. Lo Porto participated at the session of “Game Changers for the Future Market – setting the scene“, at the CEWP PI ACCESS Program, with about 250 attendees.
Antonio Lo Porto gave a presentation on the WssTP Water Vision and on its SIRA. The concept and the meaning of the ETPs was introduced and a short story of the WssTP was highlighted summarizing current achievements and structure. The three different programmes constituting the backbone of the WssTP activity (Collaboration, Advocacy and Innovation) were descripted.
The value “of” the water and “in” the water were discussed, showing how reusing water sources, adopting the multiple water concept, recovering the valuable goods in the used water streams and advancing the innovation can achieve the goal of creating a future-proof model for water smart societies through the development of water smart communities, the increasing of the circularity in the water economy and the rationale use of multiple water sources.
These concepts are the basis on which the WssTP SIRA has been developed. The major references to water in agriculture, in food production and in the bioeconomy present in the SIRA were discussed and analysed. In the conclusions, the aims of the newly developed “WssTP International Water Dialogues” were discussed.
After this presentation, a cluster of other presentation followed given by representatives of the European Investment Bank, the China Industrial Bank and others, after which a panel debate of around 40 minutes took place.
It will bring together industry, government and charity leaders to discuss pressing global challenges on water resources.
Confirmed speakers so far include senior representatives from ARUP, the Met Office, Wessex Water, Welsh Water and UKWIR, as well as prominent researchers from the GW4 universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter.Read More
CENTAUR technology was recently awarded as the ‘Most Innovative New Technology of the Year’ at the 2018 Water Industry Awards, an event that celebrates and rewards outstanding achievement and innovation in the UK water industry.
One of the most widespread impacts of climate change will be the increased frequency and severity of urban flooding due to peaked storms with intense rainfall. This has the potential to impact thousands of EU citizens. CENTAUR has been designed in response to the need to reduce flooding in increasingly crowded urban areas by utilising the existing storage capacity within wastewater systems. During periods of intense rainfall, these systems can overflow because their local capacity is exceeded.
The CENTAUR system measures level at key points within a wastewater network and communicates this information via a proprietary radio protocol to the CENTAUR Hub. The Hub uses an Artificial Intelligence algorithm to instruct a gate to effectively manage and utilise capacity that exists within the network.
The CENTAUR project, was funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme and the technology was developed by a consortium including scientists and engineers from Environmental Monitoring Solutions (EMS) the University of Sheffield, the University of Coimbra, EAWAG (Zurich), Steinhardt GmbH, Veolia and Águas de Coimbra.

Transforming municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) from net power consumers into energy neutral or even energy positive service providers is no longer a dream.
Today’s cutting-edge technologies, such as Resource Recovery Factories, have become more affordable for many cities and regions, empowering urban areas with a new source of flexibility in their energy system while also facilitating their commitment towards climate goals.
Discussions around innovations that enable these new Resource Recovery Factories will be at the core of this two-day conference which will feature recognised experts. Participants will learn about the European and energy framework in which the WWTP as a renewable energy source operates, whilst also investigating the market deployment potential.
The project is committed to working in close collaboration with both academia and the industry, therefore each topic has been developed and shaped to meet the IFAT audience expectations: to learn, be questioned and challenge the discussions.
The wastewater sector has a potential in the energy transition for Europe. Don’t underestimate the power of wastewater. Come and discover the circular wastewater economy!
