Organizer: IWA Young Water Reuse Professionals, Olivier Lefebvre, SGP Patrick Smeets, KWR Watercycle Research Institute, Nieuwegein/NL; Ulf Miehe, Kompetenzzentrum Wasser Berlin, D KfW Development Bank/D; GIZ - Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit/D; BGR Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources/D BMBF funding measure WavE/D

During this experiential workshop, Young Water Reuse Professionals (YWRP) will integrate in teams guided by a senior mentor to develop an innovative solution to a local case study that will be proposed by the organizers (e.g., design a water reuse system for the hotel facility in which the conference is held). The teams will present their solution to a panel of judges for feedback and recognition.

Detailed description

It is important to determine the microbial safety of reused water to prevent spreading of diseases. Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment provides a methodology to assess health risks from water reuse. This workshop introduces a free, web-based QMRA tool for both beginners and experienced users that uses state of the art scientific knowledge and approaches.


The main objective of the workshop is to bring together practitioners of the Development Cooperation (Consultants, Engineers, Agriculture, Industry), the scientific community, representatives of partner countries and politicians in order to share experiences based on the presented case studies and to proceed to a reality check on drivers, challenges, unexpected obstacles and unexpected dynamics with regard to the implementation of water reclamation and reuse projects. In conclusion of the workshop ideas and recommendations with regard to the way forward should be compiled and highlighted.

Detailed agenda

The funding measure WavE is developing innovative technologies and management concepts to realize a sustainable increase in water availability. The focus is on: (I) water reuse of municipal wastewater, (II) reuse of water in industry, (III) use of saline ground- and surface water. The workshop will discuss challenges and barriers for implementation of reuse solutions and ways forward towards and efficient use of innovative solutions.
