In this post, Caloris “Water Guy” Simon Zimmer reports from the WateReuse Symposium, which finishes up today in Austin, Texas.
The last few days I have been attending the 33rd Annual WateReuse Symposium in Austin, Texas.
The symposium began with a fascinating talk by Captain Scott Kelly, a former astronaut, who used water reuse during his 1-year adventure in space.
It has been an interesting symposium filled with informative presentations on how water reuse plays a major role in all types of sectors at the industrial and municipal level. Most interesting for Caloris-related work were presentations on fracking, power plants, regulations on water reuse and a case study on how a soda company is doing a pilot project on zero liquid discharge.
Though there is a bit more focus on the municipal sector, it has been an excellent opportunity to learn the latest on water reuse in the United States and where it is headed. Everyone agrees, water scarcity will become a growing issue and water reuse will play a key role in mitigating the negative impact.
Caloris has many successful water reuse case studies. Maybe we will have an opportunity to share our success and lessons learned at a future WateReuse Symposium.
