We have 8 specified German Companies which take part from the Sector Water and Waste Water which will provide a brief induction about themselves on the conference day and are available for individual meetings on the following day. Places are limited and meetings need to be pre booked.

Conference will take place on the 13th of March. Individual Cooperation Meetings will take place on the 14th of March.

Background: water and sewage - an important issue

Ireland has an outdated water infrastructure. In the Irish water system, an estimated 46 million litres water are lost every day, which is equivalent to half of the treated water in Ireland. Even more serious is the situation in the waste water structure and the water treatment plants. The Irish government plans to invest € 5.5 billion in water supply and sewage management. German companies which are active in the fields of water, waste water and environmental technology could, with their expertise and technology, optimise processes and performances, not only at the local level, but also in water intensive industries.
