Potable Water and Biotechnologies

The focus in this panel will be on potable water. A key topic is “water in health” – microelements and minerals dissolved in potable water and their impact on people’s condition and health, overall. How we consume water on a daily basis and how tap, table, and mineral water complement each other, will be the main points for discussion.

Another topic of growing interest is the link between geographic location (dams and aquifers), the treatment methods needed and the quality of potable water achieved. Deficiency or excess of certain minerals deserve an honorable mention here.

The meeting point of all these aspects would be technologies – both emerging and well-established ones. Furthermore, the recent evolution of regulations will be paid attention to as well.
