THE CBN staged round table webinar on waste water reuse held on 1st September attracted more than 70% attendance from the 117 participants who registered for the event, exceeding the industry norm by more than 30%.

CBN would like to thank its platinum and gold sponsors Maskam Water and Xylem Water Solutions who received a high level of feedback from participants, confirming their participation.

This influential event was the second in a three part series staged in conjunction with the SA Water Chamber to address the spectre of a predicted 17% shortfall of supply against demand by 2030.

Clearly water reuse as one potential solution to our impending water crisis struck a chord with the audience, from across the water and wastewater sectors.

The two hour round table discussion was very ably moderated by Dr Nonhlanhla Kalebaila, Research Manager: Drinking Water Treatment & Quality at the WRC, directing probing questions to the panel of experts:

  • Megan Schalkwyk – Process Engineer, Umgeni Water; Chair WISA Water Reuse Division KZN Chapter & Vice Chair WISA KZN Branch
  • Chris Swartz – Independent Water Utilization Engineer & WISA Water Reuse Technical Committee Member, former Division Lead & currently Chairperson, WISA Water Reuse Western Cape.
  • Achim Wurster – Independent Process Engineer & former WISA Board Chair and WISA Membrane Technology Division Lead.

The panel and Dr Kalebaila fielded questions posed by the enthusiastic audience who were keen to understand the technical intricacies of water reuse, the technologies involved and how it has been applied to date by public and private authorities and organisations as well as the mining industry.

CBN would like to thank its platinum and gold sponsors Maskam Water and Xylem Water Solutions who received a high level of feedback from participants, confirming their participation.

The next CBN round table discussion focuses on sanitation issues on the 29 September and is free to all interested parties.
