IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS 2010 features first-rate supporting program  

Mar 22 2010

The highlight of this year’s supporting program at IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS, which takes place at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from May 5 – 7, 2010, is a workshop on "Earth System Engineering: Challenges and Chances for the Water Sector" on May 6 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), which is being organized by CRAES – the Chinese Research Academy of the Environmental Sciences (Peking) – and IESP – International Group for Earth Systems Preservation (Munich), in close conjunction with the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Public Health (StMUG) and Messe München International (MMI). Prof. Meng Wei, President of CRAES, Prof. Peter Wilderer, winner of the Stockholm Water Award in 2003, and ten experts from China and Europe will hold lectures and discuss environmental crises around the world including climate change, dwindling energy supplies, the food shortage and social imbalance, especially when it comes to water. They will join participants in debating holistic solutions and guidelines for responsible action on the part of the commercial and political sectors.

As in the past, the German Association for Water, Wastewater and Waste (DWA) is organizing a series of technical and scientific conferences at this year’s fair. Among other things, key topics include the water supply, waste water, raw-materials management, air-pollution control and environmental technologies. On May 5, 2010, i.e. the first day of the fair, there will be a presentation of German-Chinese research projects in the water sector at the "German-Chinese Research Projects Symposium". These water projects are funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST).

For the second time, Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) is organizing a workshop on "Energy Efficiency in Water Supply and Waste Water Treatment" on May 6 (2 – 5 p.m.). The workshop will focus on reducing energy consumption in sewage treatment plants and the efficient use of energy made from sewage sludge and addresses experts in the water and energy sectors.

The BMU is also organizing a workshop on "Treatment of Contaminated Land – Methods and Technologies" together with "Terra-, Aqua- und Sanierungskompetenzzentrum Leipzig - TASK” on May 5 (2 – 5 p.m.). This event will allow representatives from the public sector, research and industry to present specific aspects of dealing with contaminated sites systematically.

For the first time ever, Econet China, a platform for German-Chinese joint ventures, is organizing B2B matchmaking at IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS. Before the fair even begins, interested exhibitors can contact potential international contacts through Econet China to arrange to meet with them personally at IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS.
