A delegation of German technology companies in the water sector has visited IMDEA Water to learn about cooperation opportunities with Spanish partners. During the appointment, held this Friday, the delegates were received by Raffaella Meffe, deputy director of the institute.
The visit has been organized by the German Chamber of Commerce in Spain, in collaboration with Bayern International, an organization attached to the Ministry of Economy of the Federal State of Bavaria, and with the Bavarian Environmental Technology cluster.
Researchers from the Membrane Technology, Soil and Water Quality, and Bioe groups, and the Chemical Analysis Laboratory have shown the scientific-technological capabilities of IMDEA Agua. Furthermore, the twenty delegates have toured the laboratories and pilot plants and showed their interest in the different projects underway.
Like Spain, Germany faces a challenging supply future due to water shortages, coupled with high demand from intensive agriculture, tourism, households, and industry. The interest of the mission focuses on cooperation with IMDEA Water to develop new solutions in the areas of reuse of treated water for industry and urban infrastructure, nature-based solutions for small towns and industries, control and quality of water and soils, and decontamination.
