Seminar overview

Re-using water is one of the principal means that manufacturing organisations can reduce their environmental footprint. However in the agrifood and pharma/biopharma sectors process water recover presents its own challenges in relation to quality, reliability and cost. This one day seminar brings together Irish and international case studies of best practice in industry, along with leading experts in process water technology and academics.

The event promises to be of enormous benefit to engineers, food scientists and plant managers as well as contractors interested in learning more about latest technologies and developments in this sector in Ireland and internationally.

Senior personnel from industry will share their experiences of developing best practice in their own manufacturing operations.
