Showcasing our nature-based, adaptable wastewater treatment system
Six partners from our project consortium attended this year’s World Water Week in Stockholm, where we saw that the global water sector has a strong interest in our nature-based wastewater treatment system. Numerous sanitation experts and representatives of utilities, governments and NGOs came to our booth to discuss how the INNOQUA technologies could be adapted to their specific needs. It was a promising indication of a market that increasingly focusses on decentralised solutions.
Delegates also raised a range of technical and logistical questions at our showcase, including: “Are such solutions appropriate only for rural populations, or can they be successfully integrated into megacities and other urban environments?” Experiences from our demo sites in big cities such as Quito (Ecuador), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Bangalore (India) indicate that there are various opportunities to implement the INNOQUA system in densely populated neighborhoods, as well as in individual residential and office buildings.
World Water Week provided an ideal opportunity to introduce our technologies to global experts, and to stimulate a range of discussions that will continue on a local level with our demo site managers.
