Summary

After agriculture, the world's leading cause of water consumption, the next largest demands come from the industrial sector at 10% of the total figure. Industry requires water for processing, manufacturing and cleaning operations, with the majority discharged from the production process as wastewater. Solar technologies are particularly well suited to supporting industrial water purification, wastewater management, decontamination and desalination processes. Furthermore, their contribution to solving water supply problems in arid, sun-blessed locations means that solar technologies can also reduce local fossil fuel consumption. By exploring the vast scope of deployment and salient market opportunities, speakers in this session will showcase the latest developments in a range of solar technologies for applications with water - the world's most precious resource.
