Amsterdam International Water Week is a biennial event that gathers experts from cities, industries, and utilities from around the world to showcase innovative solutions and real-life water cases. The event recognises that a secure and prosperous future for all relies on climate resilience and a shift to a circular economy; and that water connects the progress and development of all stakeholders towards these goals.
This year, the over-arching theme of the AIWW Conference is ‘Implementation of Integrated Solutions by Cities, Industries, Utilities and Financiers: from cases to bankable projects’. The intention is to showcase integrated, feasible approaches to water innovation and management. AIWW also provides a collaborative platform for connecting parties who face challenges with those who offer solutions and those who finance their implementation.
Royal HaskoningDHV will be sharing our experiences and innovations in creating a virtuous water cycle at the AIWW Conference. We look forward to building relationships with all parties working towards the common goal of safe and stable access to water for all. Our involvement extends beyond our sponsorship to participation in the three Leadership Fora, Conference paper sessions, Aquatech trade exhibition, side events and excursions.
The AIWW Conference: Sharing Insights
We believe that Smart Places are the future for the sustainable development of cities and societies. Water, an increasingly scarce resource, is a critical component in the creation of these Smart Places. The four core topic areas of the AIWW Conference speak directly to the future of cities and the creation of the Water Circuit of the Future, under the overarching theme ‘From cases to bankable projects’. We are looking forward to engaging in this conversation by sharing strategies and innovations for climate adaptation and city resilience.Read more
THE AIWW LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME: FURTHERING DIALOGUE
More densely populated cities. More complex water infrastructure. More rigid regulations. Moving forward, a more holistic approach will be needed to plan for future development – and leaders will need to collaborate across sectors to share learnings, address challenges and realise opportunities. We look forward to sharing our experiences through three Roundtables as part of the AIWW2019 Leadership Programme:
|•||Utility Leaders Forum – ‘The Future of Digital Solutions’|
|•||Resilient City Leaders Forum – ‘Developing Water Sensitive Futures’|
|•||Industry Leaders Forum – ‘Digital solutions to manage weather and climate related risk for industries’|
AQUATECH AMSTERDAM: LEADING INNOVATION
With over 20,000 visitors expected to attend from 140 countries, Aquatech is a formidable platform for networking and sharing knowledge; and a comprehensive showcase for the latest trends and innovations worldwide. At the Royal HaskoningDHV Pavilion this year, we will exhibit three of our own innovations: Aquasuite®, an AI-powered analyst and autopilot for forward-thinking utilities and industries; Nereda® wastewater treatment plants for both industrial and domestic wastewater; and Kaumera Nereda® Gum, a new by-product with almost endless application possibilities.Read more
AIWW EXCURSION: VISIT THESE SITES
Kaumera and the Calcite factory
Thursday 7 November, 09h00 – 16h30
We are inviting interested stakeholders to join us on 7 November for an inspirational excursion to two innovative showcases of circularity in water treatment – the state-of-the-art Kaumera plant (Zutphen) and the Calcite factory (Amsterdam) – for a firsthand look at resource recovery in drinking and wastewater treatment.
Kaumera Nereda® Gum is a new biological raw material that is extracted from the sludge granules that form during the Nereda® purification process. This year, the first plant in the world to produce this innovative raw material opened in Zutphen. Due to the unique properties of the biopolymer Kaumera, there are infinite possibilities for applications that previously could only be realised with chemical raw materials.
The Calcite Factory is an innovative factory where calcite (a byproduct of drinking water softening) is processed and made suitable for various product applications. This pilot plant was built in the port of Amsterdam in cooperation with Advanced Minerals.Book now
