This presentation showed WEG's industrial capabilities, providing value and innovative solutions to improve efficiency and sustainability in the water sector.

The Spanish Desalination and Reuse Association (AEDyR) was created in 1998 to unite the different companies and groups in this sector in Spain. The purpose of the Association, as stated in its statutes, is to "promote the appropriate use of seawater and brackish water desalination and the reuse of reclaimed wastewater, thus contributing to the sustainable management of water resources." To this end, it carries out a series of activities, including its congresses, as a meeting point for the sector, disseminating research and technological innovations, and training and preparation activities for technicians.
