Smart Water Solutions

Smart Water Solutions

By Hakim El Fadil
In this podcast, you will learn technical hints and industrial expertise on how efficiently you could exploit water treatment technologies. I’ll emphasize how to reduce the CAPEX (Capital Expenses) as well as the OPEX (Operational Expenses) of the existing water technologies. You will also learn about water technologies which are still in the development phase at both academia and industry sectors. Regulations towards water treatment will be covered. And most importantly, I’ll invite investors in water tech because money is obviously oxygen for water tech to grow and flourish:).
