In this short review, we present the events and conferences where the BioSolWaRe LIFE project has been disseminated.
Presentation of LIFE BioSolWaRe project in “Networking at European Technology Approval Group (TAG)” in Leuven
AQUALIA has participated in the 12th Technology Approval Group (TAG), organized by Isle Utilities in Leuven (Belgium) in March 2018, in order to discuss with the world´s leading water entities about water scarcity and droughts, cost-effective and efficient solutions to save fresh water for reuse and prevent GHG releases. Aqualia has attended several TAG meetings and online forums and discussions regarding water reuse, where the BioSolWaRe project and its potential implementation has been presented.
The participation in this forum has allowed Aqualia to promote the BioSolWaRe project in an international forum of experts and potential external investors. Moreover, the European TAG meetings has offered a fantastic alternative to improve the commercialization potential of the BioSolWaRe technologies, and accelerate the market uptake of these technologies.

Participation in FERTINNOWA congress where Aqualia presented in Almería BioSolWaRe project as a competitive solution for irrigation and fertigation reusing wastewater
Event organized in the frame of the H2020 project Transfer of INNOvative techniques for sustainable WAter use in FERtigated crops (Fertinnowa) in Almeria during the days 3, 4 and 5 October 2018. This conference provides the European horticulture sector an opportunity to learn, exchange experiences and identify growers’ needs for optimal irrigation and fertigation management. More than 250 participants from all over Europe have assisted to the congress.
Aqualia has exhibited and presented in an oral session different technologies focused on producing reusable water for irrigation and biofertilizer from wastewater; such is the case of LIFE BioSolWaRe Demo 2 plant located in el Toyo WWTP (Almería). Local and international stakeholders have been identified to find potential investors for the BioSolWaRe technologies.
